Should priorities be parks or people?
A word about the new parks funding proposal, please.
While Edmonds is a pleasant place to live, in part because of its parks, there are other items that make a community attractive. One is a tendency to think more of people than of flower pots and "culture."
Before we meekly accept a levy-without-a-vote of $120 a year per household to enhance parks, let's see our priorities clearly.
We have hungry, homeless people in Edmonds just as there are hungry people everywhere. We live in hard times just now.
Edmonds would look very attractive, indeed, if it were to fund more public support and shelter for our local needy. I, for one, would gladly pay $10 a month for that.
