Remember to Vote Tuesday April 3rd
Friday, March 30, 2012
We know it’s coming and we continually get caught off guard as candidates gear up for the upcoming city election. They haunt us on the radio, interrupt our favorite prime time television, and of course overload our mailbox as we go about our daily life. All in hopes that whatever message they are trying to send or person they are trying to be can relate to your thoughts and beliefs, because that is the name you might remember when you step in to that voting booth and scan down the list of names. Of course there are plenty of educated voters who do their homework making sure the candidate they choose is indeed the individual they feel is best for the job…and we commend you.
Since AFD Status is focused completely on the public safety for our community we carry a simple goal when it comes to elections here in Anchorage and Eagle River; “Are you the best candidate for the safety of our community and will you continue to make this a priority?” So as you read through your mail,watch the TV ads, or even get the opportunity to address the candidates; consider asking them this very question. We are able to perform our job above and beyond the call of duty due to the continued support of our community and it shows. We have a nationally ranked cardiac save rate, our property losses per capita due to fire is below average, and you can find our firefighters giving back everyday in the community.
This is entirely due in part to you and your support, so ask you elected officials and candidates if they too feel this strongly about your safety and remember to vote April 5th.
