This sounds like a great opportunity to get together with friends and neighbors while supporting a very worthy cause. Thank you to the "Friends of Wildomar Parks" who work so selflessly to sustain our one remaining park. The park gets no financial support from the city or the taxpayers (I know that's redundant). We appreciate everything you are doing to save our park. We welcome and appreciate any help and support we can get. Hope more people will join the "Friends."

A word of thanks, as well, to Supervisor Bob Buster for graciously sponsoring this community event. Throughout the past two decades, Supervisor Buster has been Wildomar's" best friend" when it comes to parks, and other things. Were it not for Supervisor Buster's ongoing support for the community of Wildomar, Marna O'Brien Park would still be a weed patch. Since the current Wildomar City Council is unwilling, or unable, to find a way to reallocate funds to care for Wildomar’s parks, they are riding on the backs of selfless volunteers, who keep Marna O'Brien Park open and functioning. To the park volunteers, I join Ray A’s expression of gratitude for their laudable efforts. To the Wildomar City Council, a well-deserved "Thanks for nothing."

I too want to express my appreciation for the hard work that volunteers are doing to keep the park open. It is a lot of hard work to expect of volunteers.. However, it would seem to me that with a multi-million dollar budget, the council is being irresponsible by not finding the money necessary to support the parks and Wildomar's system of trails. These are things the citizens of Wildomar have said were important to them in the original Visioning Statement. It seems there is a great divide between what the people's and the council's priorities are...wasn't there something about the council being elected to serve the people?

I share the disappointment in our City Council, for not taking care of what they were put into office to preserve. Wildomar only had a couple of parks to maintain and yet the Council believes their priorities should be elsewhere. I was totally opposed to the Park tax effort, not because it was unworthy, but I am not going to add to our tax burden by paying for something that should be covered in the general funds. We are currently spending over $1 million per year for Council and Administration salaries and benefits. That is where my tax money is going! And how about my favorite cause – City Hall, for which the annual lease is $128,000 and that doesn’t include the electricity, telephone, water, etc. (not to mention $9,000 annual cost for janitorial services). Wildomar is looking more like North Korea - Let the people starve, while the leaders live in the lap of luxury?
