Letter to the editor: Vote for quality of life


As a South Suburban resident, I urge you to vote yes on South Suburban's 4B and 4C ballot issues. These two ballot issues protect our property values by extending the funding for the stellar work that South Suburban Park and Recreation District performs. It is imperative to support recreation and our quality of life because the recreation centers, golf courses, trails, and classes that SSPRD manages and maintains allow everyone to participate in whatever recreation best suits them.

Issue 4B focuses on the maintenance and preservation of existing assets, while 4C focuses on providing future major upgrades and additional amenities for residents of all ages. Voting yes on both issues will also improve water and energy efficiency in our parks, fields, and facilities, something that should be important to everyone.

Visitors are always impressed by our many recreation options, the gorgeous views, sunsets, rivers and creeks, and the wildlife we often see along the trails. Our recreation centers are also a great option for any form of exercise, also offering meeting rooms, art shows, theater productions, and neighborhood gathering places. I've also played a few of the SSPRD golf courses - they are enjoyable!

Please support continued recreational opportunities, fiscal responsibility, and improved property values by voting yes on South Suburban's 4B and 4C. Our quality of life is important!

There is no increase in taxes. These ballot issues simply extend the funding that SSPRD receives now.
