I’m proud to be a life-long Visalian. Visalia is a wonderful, safe place to raise a family and I want it to stay that way. I’m voting for Measure N and I urge you do the same.
For just 5 cents on every $10 I spend on goods like clothes or appliances, I can help raise $10.8 million to maintain our police, fire and road maintenance services; money that has to remain local and cannot be confiscated and spent by Sacramento. Every cent of the money raised by Measure N will stay local. This is vitally important to our community.
I believe the Visalia City Council has adopted a very comprehensive oversight program that includes ample opportunity for public input, for the Oversight Committee to critique the annual Measure N budget before it is adopted, and for the committee to conduct an audit on how the money was spent in the previous year.
Visalia has always been a community where the people who live here are willing to get involved to make Visalia better. Voting for Measure N is a way to keep Visalia vital today and in the future.
Please join me in voting “yes” on N.
Bob Link, Visalia
