Vote yes on Measure U

By Ed Carcarey - Santa Maria

This is the first time in my life that I am willing to promote a tax. I like Measure U for four reasons: This is local money that stays here for local programs–Sacramento cannot get their greedy paws on it; it supports Santa Maria police and fire services; it attracts people to our city by making Santa Maria safer; and there is a local citizens overwatch committee that makes sure our leaders do what they promised to do.

I believe we all share the desire to live in a safe and thriving Santa Maria, so this is the time to vote yes on Measure U to support many municipal services the community says it wants.

Please join me in voting yes on Measure U on or before Nov. 6.

Yes. We missed paychecks and had to make some tough decisions.
I don't work for the government, and it didn't impact me at all.
I don't have a government job, but I still missed out on important services.
I'm glad it happened. Who needs airport security anyway?
