I urge my fellow voters in Kanawha County to vote for the Ambulance, Bus, and Emergency Services Levy, sometimes called the Safety Levy, on Tuesday.

I remember voting for the first levy to support KVRTA bus service back in 1973, when I was 23 years old. During the past 49 years, I have continued to vote for the levy as its scope has expanded. Most of the revenue from this levy are now used to support bus and ambulance service; some of the revenue aids law enforcement and fire protection.

Please vote Tuesday to continue this Kanawha County levy.
