Fellow Union Firefighter: 

As a professional firefighter, you understand the importance of fast and effective fire and medical response. You know that it takes adequate staffing and well placed resources to provide a quality service.     

After 15 years, it’s time for Clackamas Fire #1 to replace our Bond Issue and we are asking for your help and support. 

This levy would replace a .10 / $1,000 levy that was first approved by voters in 2000 with a new .10 / $1,000 levy that would take effect in June of 2015. This would result in a total levy cost of $2.50 a month or $30 a year for a $300,000 home in our service area. 

This Bond Measure is important because it will free up funding for increased staffing in our 20 community fire stations. Currently six of our stations are at NFPA 1710 four per apparatus. Our plan to be fully 1710 compliant becomes a closer reality with passage of this bond levy. It also allows for the opening of engine companies currently unstaffed.  

The members of IAFF Local 1159 fully support this effort because we understand that the passage of ballot measure #3-466 will provide the long term funding needed to make us a safer, more efficient and more effective service provider.

Providing fast and effective fire / medical service will always be our top priority. Replacing our levy will help us continue to deliver the professional service that you expect and deserve.  

Election Day is May 19, 2014. For more information go to:

Thank you, 

Mark Oelschlager
