Every Second Counts:

Vote YES on Measure 26-247

Over the past 20 years, Gresham’s population has risen about 19%, but the daily minimum firefighter staffing has only increased 9% and we have one less sworn police officer than we did in 2004.

In an emergency or crisis, every second counts.

Gresham has too few firefighters and police officers to meet the number of emergency calls. Our city has grown, and so has the demand for emergency services.

We need more firefighters and police officers to continue to provide the lifesaving services our residents depend on.  


Our first responders put their lives on the line for us every day.

On May 21st, we can be there for them by Voting YES on Measure 26-247, a five-year levy dedicated solely to fire and police staffing and support so they can continue to be there when we need them the most.


Get the Facts

This levy will give our community the tools and resources we need to continue to support our citizens and grow together.

"Having sustainable funding for basic local government services is critical to our community's future.  The City of Gresham operates very efficiently, and this modest levy is necessary to operate basic government services."
