None of us would want there to be a delay when we call for help in our own town. However, our police and fire departments are severely understaffed.
I am very proud of the Ceres Department of Public Safety and I am very pleased with Chief Art deWerk's efforts to give us top-notch service. But let's face it, those men and women have a tough job that gets harder every day.
We need to support Measure H, a half- cent sales tax increase, to get them more personnel to do the jobs they are sworn to uphold.
