The following letter was submitted by Antioch resident Susana Williams
I know Antioch is a great place to live and I’m supporting Measure W so we can make it even better!
My family and I moved here over 20 years ago because we wanted to live in a nice home with a yard in a diverse neighborhood – all in a growing city. Our Mello-Roos contributions helped build the City’s infrastructure and our daughter was in the inaugural 6th grade class at Dallas Ranch Middle School. She went on to graduate from Deer Valley HS which prepared her for success in college.
I’ve seen Antioch grow up … from the days when we couldn’t get a pizza delivered to our home to today, where we have nice restaurants, an expanded BART system, major stores and shopping districts. I’ve also seen the benefits of Measure C – the expanded police presence and code enforcement keeping our streets and neighborhoods cleaner and safe.
We’re at a good place, but I can see the future. The future is more recreational opportunities for our young citizens, maintaining clean water, stopping illegal dumping and faster emergency response times, to name a few. Measure W brings us all of that and more. On November 6th, please join me in voting YES on Measure W.
