To the Editor:

I have a long history of living in Keizer and have been very active in many phases of its development.  I have always admired the dedication and energy that the Keizer Fire District has given to the Keizer community.  These many volunteers and the addition of more professional staff over the years, have added to our great fire department and the continuing services.

This new levy will help to keep the services that we enjoy as a community.  The response time is essential for our growing and aging population.  The cuts that will be done if this levy does not pass will have a crippling effect on our citizens.

I strongly support the continuation of these vital services with this levy.
