The key to this infrastructure is diversity. A wide variety of people are funding the infrastructure, and we need a wide variety of choices. There are some people who live in this community who don't have children but are willing to fund the school system with property tax dollars. All of us are paying for recreational activities whether we use them or not because the majority feels it is part of a healthy community structure. White Cliff Community Center is just another essential part of that structure. It offers our seniors, children and adults a safe, stimulating place to use their time.
Mr. Klein himself says it best: "We need to invest in something that is good for all kids and not just ones that belong to certain organizations." Not every child is a baseball player, not every adult attends youth sporting events. In the same way, not every adult or child is involved in the community organizations that are part of White Cliff Center. Some of us are involved in both. The point is that we have a variety of indoor and outdoor activities for youth, adults and seniors. Let's not pit one against another, let's support one another. That's why I support the White Cliff ballot measures. I will be voting YES on October 3rd and I urge others to do so as well.
About: I am a 12 year resident,
mother of three boys (each an avid baseball and soccer player,
actor, and musician), wife to Andy (baseball/soccer coach and
musician). I spend my time in the audience and in the stands
cheering them on.
