First of all, I was born, raised and currently reside in the city of Modesto and am in support of Measure X.
The reality of this measure is that if it doesnt pass, public safety service will not stay status quo. It will suffer tremendously with possible layoffs to police and fire personnel.
This city has already lost approximately 55 police and 33 fire jobs over the past five years with an increase in the call volume. This city needs a change, and this is a great start. So please vote yes on Measure X.
