The Challenge

Due to massive cuts in pensions and benefits, Memphis is hemorrhaging police officers and fire fighters. Ultimately it is the citizens who have suffered most as the city has become less safe. A plan is needed to retain and boost recruitment of qualified fire fighters and police officers.

The Solution

State Law requires the Memphis Fire Fighters Association and the Memphis Police Association to gather 40,000 signatures of registered Memphis voters to have a referendum placed before the voters that will direct the city to levy a ½ cent increase to the Sales Tax of Memphis. The proceeds from this change (projected to be 50 million dollars yearly) will be used to restore pensions and healthcare for fire, police, and retirees. Any funds left over will be used for street maintenance and the funding of Pre-K programs.

We need 40,000 City of Memphis voter signatures
to put a referendum on the ballot.
