For years, the Glendale Police and Fire Departments have been losing men and women from the frontlines. Budgets have been cut to the bone. Response times have grown slower. Fire calls in the city have jumped 18%. Emergency medical calls have jumped 13%. Violent crime, including murder and assaults, has spiked. Property crime in Glendale today stands at an all-time high.
Now comes Proposition 457. It will cut more than 100 jobs from Glendale public safety – including taking dozens of uniformed, sworn police officers and firefighters off the street.
Proposition 457 will close two public libraries and the Rose Lane Pool. It will cut after-school programs for kids, end programs for senior citizens, slash services to the homeless and make it tougher for small business to get permits and licenses.
All to save the average homeowner about $2 a week.
VOTE NO ON 457. Join your police officers, fire fighters and the Glendale business community in protecting our city.
