Park district is unwise to spend during recession | Letter to the Editor

Brava to Hilary Emmer for her well-put letter to the editor (“Park district dug itself into a financial hole”).
With times so tough for so many people right now, it seems wise to be conservative with out dwindling resources. To me, beginning any new money-sucking project whilst the world is in economic freefall is pure folly.
As more and more people lose their jobs and homes, where will the funding come from to complete this long-range ball field project?
A lot of people think this recession we are experiencing will end and things will go back to normal. It doesn’t seem likely, but maybe so.
Any big-cost, long-term operation should wait till then.
When I was a kid we played ball on a dirt field. If we weren’t having fun, I guess nobody told us.
