VOTE "NO" ON MEASURE P on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at the El Segundo City election, to save money and lives.

El Segundo City Council candidate Scott Houston, and the El Segundo Firefighters' Association (union), tried to deny you your right to vote on Measure P.

They both strongly urged the City Council to enacting it into law as an ordinance, without putting it on any ballot, because they are afraid that if you are allowed to vote on it, you will vote against Measure P to save money and lives.

You can vote against Scott Houston when you vote "NO" on Measure P, on April 10, 2012, or before then by mail.

Video Clip Explanation:

Note the identical and similar language used in the first two speeches, by Bryan Partlow and Scott Houston. Clearly, they read scripts that were written by the same person, probably the firefighter union's professional political campaign consultant that has been working on Measure P for a long time.

For example, note the repetitious phrase, "sooner rather than latter", that is in both speeches.

El Segundo City Council candidate Scott Houston, and the El Segundo Firefighters' Association (union), tried to deny you your right to vote on Measure P. They both strongly urged the City Council to enacting it into law as an ordinance, without putting it on any ballot, because they are afraid that if you are allowed to vote on it, you will vote against Measure P to save money and lives.

Measure P is not a "merger" with the Los Angeles County Fire Department as the firefighter union and City Council candidate Scott Houston misrepresented, but a hostile takeover by the El Segundo Firefighters Association (union) and the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

If Measure P passes, it will disband and liquidate the local El Segundo Fire Department and force the city to contract with the Los Angeles County Fire Department for a reduced level of fire and paramedic emergency services. El Segundo residents will permanently lose their three city-operated paramedic ambulance units, and be forced to rely on out-of-town ambulance companies, significantly increasing hospital transport times and fees.

This short video clip features excerpts of El Segundo Firefighters' union member Bryan Partlow, and Scott Houston (one of the firefighter and police union-backed city council candidates) speaking during Public Communications at the beginning of the February 15, 2011 El Segundo, California City Council meeting.

The El Segundo firefighters lied to city voters to get them to sign their union initiative petition, saying that signing it would preserve our local Fire Department when the opposite was true, and that signing it would not make it law, but would only put the initiative on the ballot to allow voters to vote on it. Note the deceptive name the firefighters' union used for their initiative, solely to deceive and mislead the voters.

But after the firefighters collected enough petition signatures, firefighter Bryan Partlow and resident Scott Houston spoke on behalf of the firefighters' union at the February 15, 2011 El Segundo City Council meeting, and citing the petition signatures as "justification", they asked the City Council to enact the initiative into law WITHOUT allowing the voters to vote on it.

Partlow and Houston told the City Council that if they insisted on putting the union initiative on the ballot, their second choice was to put it on the earliest possible election ballot, in a special election on June 7, 2011. The firefighters' union and Houston wanted the earliest possible election date with highest voter turnout to give the firefighters' union an unfair advantage to win the election for Measure P.
