Support

The editorial board of the Oakland Tribune urged a "yes" vote on Measure P, saying, "Albany emergency services have an average response time of four minutes per call and it's imperative to maintain a high level of service for the community. The tax increase is small and is obviously money well spent."[1]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the Albany Municipal Code, Chapter 4-8 entitled “Paramedic Advanced Life Support Fire Engines and Ambulance Special Tax” be amended, as set forth in the Voter Pamphlet, to provide that the City Council may increase the tax commencing in fiscal year 2011-2012 in accordance with the Consumer Price Index for the greater San Francisco area?[2]
