In Ketchikan the architectural
and mechanical technology used was what was available to the
city/borough in that era. At that time, I'm sure the local pool
committee worked to construct a good facility within the budget
approved by the community. The Mike Smithers' pool has served
us well in the 35 years of operation. It is time to retire the
facility and if we don't replace it, I know the quality of life
will diminish for hundreds of Ketchikan individuals and numerous
organizations that utilize the facility daily. Our taxes will
not be raised with the proposed bond proposal. I urge all to
support Proposition 2.
