Letters to the Editor
As a former member of Finn Hill Park and Recreation District Board of Commissioners and the King County Park Levy Taskforce, I have seen many different ways to fund our parks and I have concluded that Proposition 1 is the right thing to do for Kirkland.
Community Events, October 2015
This is an open letter concerning the Lake Washington School Board District 1 position, Jackie Pendergrass re-election, to the Seattle Times Editorial Board for their opinion piece published on Sept. 7.
When I read the letter to the editor about Mike Nykreim I was thrilled.
This shouldn't be a debate about how to fund the Kirkland ARC [Aquatics and Recreation Center], but whether to build it at all, especially lacking a financial commitment form any other Eastside city. Ask yourself why no other city is interested.
During a recent discussion with one of our city council members I was informed that language in Kirkland ordinance O-4485, which allows the Metropolitan Park District (MPD) to raise taxes for "other future parks and recreational facilities and programs," was necessary because you cannot limit the scope of an MPD by law. And that they were advised by councsel that an MPD could not be limited to one project such as the ARC [Aquatics, Recreation and Community] Center.
