St. Louisans decisively voiced their choices at the polls on April 5. In addition to reauthorizing the earnings tax (Prop E), city voters passed a $25 million bond issue (Prop F). Their "yes" votes will ensure the continuation of critical city services and afford the fire department the capital needed to replace outdated gear and equipment, as well as finance other essential needs in the city.

I would thank you very much for championing the effort to move Prop F on to the ballot in April. Your foresight will allow the STLFD to continue to provide the level of emergency response that the citizens of the City of St Louis are accustomed to. Again, thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the future to provide for the citizens of our city.
