The Grass Valley Firefighter’s Association and Grass Valley Police Officer’s Association would like to thank the voters of Grass Valley for the support that has been shown toward Measure N thus far.

If we have not had the opportunity to talk to you in person during our efforts to give you a handout while knocking on doors, we would like to take this opportunity to tell you why Measure N is so important to us, and should be for you.

Measure N stands to put five additional police officers back on patrol and four additional firefighters on local engines. It also calls for bettering our aging equipment to make our jobs safer and provide us the resources to better protect our community. Beyond that, Measure N will put substantial money into roadway maintenance.

We are the public safety personnel on the streets of Grass Valley 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As a result, we know that our streets are in need of maintenance before they get worse. Proactive steps to protect our community from increased crime issues are necessary.

Measure N stands to put five additional police officers back on patrol and four additional firefighters on local engines.

Our husbands, wives, and family members know what it is like to have us gone on those special birthdays and holidays. On those days, as well as others, they worry about our safety. To help keep us safe, keep you and your property safe, and to restore our quality of life, we ask that you show your support by voting “yes” on Measure N. If you have already voted but know someone who has not, please encourage them to show their support, as well.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve in this wonderful community. Help us keep it great for visitors, you and our children; vote “yes” on Measure N.
