Regarding MP Fire Board Measure F:

It forces the district to spend more than they need to spend. To me it's a bad idea.

Measure F does not increase the Fire District's revenue by even one cent. It simply allows the District to spend its existing revenues on high priority tasks. If Measure F fails the District would have to cut the number of firefighters while still being able to use those same funds for capital equipment, ie firehouses and fire engines with no firefighters.

Vote Yes on Measure F - it won't increase your taxes and it will preserve your current level of emergency fire services.
