The Hermosa Beach Police Officers’ Association (POA) has announced its support and endorsement of Measure O. The organization, which represents more than 34 Hermosa Beach officers, announced its support today for the proposed oil-drilling project that would take place at the city's maintenance yard if voters approve it on March 3.
“We believe that voting yes on Measure O is in the best interest of the citizens of Hermosa Beach and the city’s financial future. The independent studies approved by the city have shown that this project is safe and reliable. Measure O offers financial stability and a source of revenue that can help Hermosa Beach and its residents,” said Hermosa Beach POA President Jaime Ramirez.
According to the press release, the project could provide revenue to fund salaries of Hermosa Beach officers and help provide additional resources for public safety officers.
“We are honored to have the support of the men and women who help protect the residents and businesses of Hermosa Beach. Our first responders are trusted and conservative in their judgments. We look forward to working with the Hermosa Beach POA to secure Hermosa’s financial future safely and cleanly,” said E&B Natural Resources President Steve Layton.
