We are writing this letter to show our support for Measure Y (renewal of the Municipal Services Tax). We believe that voting yes on Measure Y is important for many reasons. It is an existing tax which serves many purposes for the City of Piedmont which include supporting our Police and Fire department (Paramedics), and other services, that keep our city safe and clean.
We moved to Piedmont for its favorable schools and the unique care that this city provides for our children and our elders. There is no substitute for a less than five minute response time when 911 is called for a crime in progress or a medical emergency! Measure Y funds more than 7% of the City’s budget which is money well spent on resources that we can actually see in our parks, street maintenance, and other essential services.
We both encourage others to support our city of Piedmont and vote yes on Measure Y.
Janice and Brian Cain
