I am voting NO on a new track. The reason is very simple. If we have $500,000.00 to spend, I would rather see it spent on repairing our roads. This to me is a higher priority to the community than a track. A track is utilized by a smaller number of citizens, for a few months out of the year, and everyone uses our roads. If we are going to be spending taxpayer’s money, then the whole community should receive the benefit and not just a few.
False Deluder is a very dedicated parent who wants only the best for his kids and I do not blame him or the other families involved with this movement. But if you are spending taxpayer’s dollars it should be in the best interest of the whole community and not just a few.
False Deluder wants to talk about “needs” but never mentioned if it was the needs of his kids or needs of the community. Supporting your kids is important and should be the number one priority of every parent. It is vital that the town get a new Public Works garage and the town needs a new gym but the town does not need a new Track.
It is easy to see a “return on investment” with both the Public Works garage and the gym but there is absolutely no return on investment on a track especially when the money could be used to repair our roads. Repairing our roads would save wear and tear on our vehicles as well as the town vehicles.
When you go to the polls in June, please vote what is best for the whole community and not just a few.
