Letter to the Editor: Taking Exception

— Taking exception

To the editor:

Dear Mr. Conklin: The Tree Top Park was built with a combination of fundraisers, and lots of donated materials and time from local business people and volunteers.

Don’t try to make it seem like “we” need to come together as a community to build a swim park and compare that to the kids park at Sorosis.

Knowing that the swim park will be funded with nothing but our tax money, I, we, are sick of voting ourselves more tax debt. And you sir, almost accusing us of not caring for the kids, is an insult.

Don’t take that what’s-the-matter-with-you-don’t-you-care-for-the-kids attitude and try to make a moral issue of it.

Of course we care about the kids. But just off the top I can think of several better areas that our tax money can be spent on.
