The Emergency Response for All Initiatives
Your husband’s life is at risk, your daughter’s health is in jeopardy. When an accident occurs your wife could die without immediate help, your son as well. This is because of government‘s chronic under-funding of public safety services in Brentwood, Oakley and throughout fast-growing eastern Contra Costa County.
East County Voters for Equal Protection (ECV) has launched a pair of municipal voter initiatives in the cities of Brentwood and Oakley, and the measures are called the “Emergency Response for All Initiatives”. This voter crusade’s goal is to improve public safety services funding by $8 million, without increasing the tax burden of area residents.
The money would come from the growth in property and sales tax revenue to the two cities, so there would be NO NEW TAXES. We need your help in three ways:
First, send money. This community effort needs your help in three ways, most importantly, contributions are needed to pay for election filing fees, the cost of signature collection, and campaign expenses. Please use the form below if you are able to send a donation, in any amount.
Second, sign the petition when it becomes available (early 2020). Your signature is needed to put the initiatives on the November, 2020, election ballot. To be placed on the ballot the initiative needs 3,397 valid signatures of Brentwood registered voters, and 2,093 valid signatures of Oakley registered voters.
Third, vote “Yes” in November, 2020. The "Emergency Response for All Initiative" will add a chapter to the municipal codes of both cities, requiring the expenditure of city revenues on specified services as described in California’s Fire Protection District Law of 1987, and Health and Safety Code Section 13801.
