Regarding The Olympian article concerning Proposition 1 -- the merger of Fire Districts 7 and 8, and Proposition 2, the levy increase. I urge voters to vote no on both of these propositions. The residents in District 7 area are being ripped off. These propositions do nothing except increase property taxes to District 7 and reduce property taxes to District 8. District 7 residents gain absolutely nothing. Service to District 7 will be worse, not better. District 7 has always served its residents properly. Residents of Boston Harbor, imagine getting service from South Bay instead of the District 7 present location near Gull Harbor store.
