The new tax asked for by Con Fire and the Board of Supervisors needs to be voted down just like East County. These politicians and union special interest will bleed us dry of every dollar we have unless we send them a message to stop giving away our savings. Stop mortgaging our children's future. Stop overpaying benefits and salaries with our money. There are other avenues to rectify the fire district funding issue other than ask for more money. Just say NO. They have other options but fail to choose them because of the politics.

Look up Fire Departments Contra Costa and you will see why they want more money. You will also see the pay is overwhelming, out of control, and ridiculous. The benefits are even worse. Watch the threat tactics used if you do not agree to pay more money. Watch the remarks to this comment from firefighters. It has to stop before our children are mortgaged to debt and have no fire department but the retirees.
