LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Measure R is a win for community

I encourage voters to go to the polls and support Measure R on Nov. 8. Measure R is a win-win measure that puts existing funds that otherwise can’t be spent toward immediate improvement of our local bike trails and ballfields. As a BMX parent and an avid cyclist involved in local bicycle advocacy, I feel that Measure R is a reasonable compromise between local recreation interests that will make our fields and trails better and safer for our kids now. Also, a down economy is a good time to spend these funds – we’ll get more improvements for our dollar and stimulate our local economy as well. Please vote yes on Measure R.
