The Dalles Vote yes for pool
To the editor:
Please join me in voting yes on the Pool Bond that will be on the November ballot. I grew up in The Dalles and spent most summer days at the “Nat.”
I have wonderful memories from those times, as I look back on them. I also took swim lessons there and so did both of my children growing up here as well. This pool is long overdue and the current pool is in a sad state of disrepair. A vote yes sends the message to our young people that our community cares about them and wants them to have positive activities available for them.
As I understand it a house valued at $150,000 would pay less than $5 per month (the price of a fancy coffee) in taxes for the bond. That’s affordable and will add value to our community. Please vote yes and help get this bond passed in November.
