Vote to keep a valuable island resource operating

Editor,

Oak Harbor and Whidbey Island are very lucky to have an all-year public pool. Please help keeping it open by voting “yes” to renew the North Whidbey Park and Recreation levy.

This pool is used by all ages from toddlers learning to swim, high school swim teams, lap swim exercise, aerobics and physical therapy all ages.

It also supplies Navy MWR program, fire district search and rescue training, Special Olympics, kayak training and much more.

If water exercise isn’t of interest to you, maybe the off leash dog park, or Clover Valley Ball Park are important to your family. All are at-risk of closing.

Please vote “yes” on the levy renewal Nov. 7.
