Deputy City Manager, Alameda
The City of Alameda has published on its website a “Frequently Asked Questions” bulletin about the Public Safety and 911 Emergency Response Measure, or Measure C.
The bulletin answers 20 questions such as Why do we need this tax? How can we be sure the City won't squander the money on something other than facilities and equipment? And who will check to be sure the City is obeying the law?
“There is a great deal of misinformation about what Measure C actually does, and misunderstanding about what it doesn’t do,” said City Manager John Russo. “The City published this FAQ to provide the true facts so Alameda residents can evaluate Measure C for themselves.”
Russo said that Alameda residents and merchants should contact him directly with their questions. His email address is email@example.com The City will add any additional frequently asked questions to the bulletin.
