LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Measure R should be passed
October 19, 2011
Measure R is a good thing for South Lake Tahoe, and I urge local voters to support it. Most importantly, its passage will allow the use of existing unused joint powers recreation authority funds for badly needed repair of bicycle lanes and paths and ball field reconstruction. It is great to see the Bicycle Coalition, government leaders, and the community come together in support of this measure. Measure R helps locals; it helps recreation for all; it is environmentally friendly; and it will not raise taxes. Sounds like a winner to me.
