Letter to the editor: Vote no on 4B

Posted

South Suburban Parks and Recreation is awesome and very much appreciated. However, Ballot Issue 4B can be misunderstood. The vote isn't specifically about funding, it's about the sunset provision currently in place. Voting "yes" means eliminating the sunset provision...a big mistake causing the voters to lose leverage to approve future funding increases on a case-by-case basis. 

So instead, vote "no" to keep the voters in charge and force the SSPR district to come to the voters every time the funding vehicle is due for review. 

I'm a big supporter of SSPR and the awesome amenities, programs and staff! But this ballot issue isn't about that or actually funding to ensure programs stay. It's only about the sunset provision, so vote no to maintain the sunset provision.
