    Now is not the time to be asking for a raise, I have to balance on my income and the city of Fairfield should have to do the same.

    If we can't afford a extra 17 police officers and a fire station full of firefighters..then this is what has to be! Every working family in Fairfield knows the ramifications of voting No on Measure P....It's time to tell the City we can get by on a few less of those quarter million dollar safety employees!

    our city leaders have turned our city in to a dump of a city which requires hundreds of police officers to keep under control. We need leadership that makes our town a better place to live, and then we wont need hundreds of cops to keep this town from burning to the ground.

    if city leaders spent money to improve our surrounding we wouldn't need as many cops. I went to the council budget sessions..the general fund is literally going almost entirely to safety salaries. our city has too many police officers and we can't afford all those hi salaries
