Vote “yes” for Lacey-FD3 proposition 1

Voters in Lacey and rural Fire District 3 have had an on-and-off relationship with their fire fighting and medical emergency response services. City and rural residents overwhelming supported the 2010 annexation that brought the City of Lacey into the fire district’s boundaries – with more than an 80 percent approval rate. Voters should not be so short-sighted this time. The Olympian’s editorial board encourages a “yes” vote at the Aug. 5 primary election.
