Yes on O: Keep Oakdale safe

September 21, 2011 

The city of Oakdale is continuing to grow. With growth comes more crime. With more crime comes the need to have more police officers and firefighters keeping our businesses and neighborhoods safe. To keep enough officers and firefighters we must have the funds in the city budget. Please vote Yes on Measure O in the Nov. 8 election. This measure is for a half-cent increase in sales tax. A half-cent is not a lot of money when it comes to the safety of our families, friends and businesses. Do your part to keep our city a place we are proud to call our home.
