Letters to the Editor

Let’s support the fields project | Letter to the Editor

For 29 years, the Vashon Park District has kept our parks and recreation programs in the black. Then, when the first project dips into the red, it is described as “shocking” in a Beachcomber editorial (“Unfortunate financial woes plague the park district”).

A letter in the same edition adds, “When will we learn the importance of living within our means?”

For 29 years we have lived within our budgets, while the district has grown in size and complexity. Let’s all step up and support this important field complex. That’s what I plan to do.


— Ruth Anderson, co-founder, Vashon Park District
