    A vote on the May ballot “FOR” the Proposition to create Galveston County Emergency Services District No. 2 will ensure local emergency services will have funding available for future operations. For the past two years, Galveston County Commissioners Court has supported Emergency Medical Services on Bolivar Peninsula with over $750,000 per year. This level of funding is well above the level the Commissioners Court is providing for the other areas of Galveston County. This level of funding was a temporary bridge to get us to this critical vote. It is the Peninsula that must now step up and make a decision. The creation of GCESD No. 2 is a required step in keeping a 24-7-365 ambulance service on the Peninsula. A vote against ESD No. 2, will eliminate adequate ambulance service for all of us on the Peninsula. Please help me support the local Fire and EMS services on Bolivar Peninsula. Please vote for ESD No. 2. It may be your own life you save.
