Petitions fall short of target

I'm not too shocked that a bunch of people don't seek to increase their taxes. I wonder if the supporters might have been police and fire related families.

Im betting you are one of "those" that will complain when your family member stops breathing or your at gun point in your own home, or maybe you get stuck in your room cut off by a smokey fire.....because the "police and fire" have been cut.

so you can save 75 a year in taxes.....keep on grinding those nickels together

I'm in favor of using existing high tax dollars efficiently instead of scaring the people about such critical services. I see needless projects all over the place that could be eliminated to maintain fire and police.

PS. If I'm at gun point, the other guy is too! Too late to call the police until it's over.
