Money better used to create a youth center | Letter to the Editor

March 1, 2014 · Updated 9:41 AM


I can’t believe that the Oak Harbor City Council is considering spending more money on art.

We need to put the money to better use. We already have ducks and a mermaid.

I challenge the city council to go to Coupeville to the Juvenile Court, held 1 p.m. on Mondays.

That might offer an idea if what our youth have to do in Oak Harbor.

There is absolutely nothing for the youth in Oak Harbor to do.

Take some of that money and put a cover over the skate park.

To repeat someone else’s suggestion, take the Whidbey Island Bank operations center, or some other building, and make a youth center.

I’m tired of the council taking our money and spending it on unnecessary projects when they could do some good for our community.

When I watch the news, it’s full of our elected officials at all levels wasting our tax dollars; they do what they want, whether we like it or not, like Pioneer Way.
