Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2007 | Let’s credit City Attorney Mike Aguirre for giving the park back to the people: park as in a parking stall and park as in a place to recreate.
“How far that candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.” (Shakespeare)
Is Mike up for taking on the horrific decision to close the public pools three months a year in communities in order to save city money on the backs of the swimmers, mostly the kids? Many of us community activists, who are the eyes and ears of the City Council in our communities, swallow hard when we see there is money for expensive consultants and legal fees of the elected, but the pools can’t be funded for year round exercise and recreation.
Closing the pools for three months a year is a terrible decision that should be rescinded. Kids don’t vote; they just swim. Are you listening Uncle Mike? Put this issue on your agenda, please.
