As a taxpayer in the state of Ohio, I want my taxes to be spent as wisely as possible. We live in a society where we have choices on what we want our local tax dollars to support, and I truly believe that our Portage Park District is worth the investment.

It provides healthy recreation for our children who need to commune with nature. It gives our senior citizens a place to walk, stay fit and take in some fresh air.

And it provides a community gathering place for all ages. So many benefits, so very little cost.

I will be voting "for" Issue 10 on May 6 and I urge you to do the same.
