When We Dare To Dream: YES On Z

The question today isn’t about just today. The real question we have to ask is, do we want parks in Wildomar? Do we start the dream and allow it to grow?

When we vote YES on Z we decide that, yes, Wildomar will be a city that has parks. By voting YES on Z the community has options. Each of our neighboring cities started with a small amount of parks and over 20 years have expanded their parks to include community centers, tennis courts and much, much more.

In a recent local blog a writer is astounded that a community would dare to dream of being a better place. Don’t try to comment on her opinion because she doesn’t want to hear it. Her opinion is the only opinion that matters.

As we get closer to the final vote I’m finding certain people will say pretty much anything to promote their view on this issue. Mostly this includes contradicting information, trying to re-focus the issue to something else or just create fear in the community. Here are some simple facts about what we get by voting YES on Z:

First off, the three parks we already have in Wildomar will be rejuvenated and reopened. Secondly, we get options and possibilities. By having a funding source to support our parks we can file for grants and endowments to expand our parks. As the city grows over time we can build new parks, and the community has a voice in their parks.

By voting Yes on Z we help the community, both now and in the future. It’s our responsibility to provide a starting line for our children, so when they have kids they can build on what we’ve created. The dream has to start somewhere.

Without a funding source we will lose our last remaining park and without a funding source we will not qualify for grants or endowments. No one will invest in our parks if we don’t.

The question today isn’t about other places. The question today isn’t about just today. The real question we have to ask is, do we want parks in our community or do we want to become “The city without any city parks?” For about $2 a month, the only real question is does Wildomar want parks?

Thanks LER, it's not necesary for thinking people to always agree on everything. To do so would be like those that blindly follow one line of reasoning or political point of view without being willing to examine new or conflicting ideas and information. We have numerous comments here on the Patch that demonstrat that kind of senseless thought and behavior. I am heartened to see that as those people come and go, more thoughtful people seem to come forward. Each of us need to confront corruption and wrongdoing in our own way.

Ah Marfa corruption buster, you need to get a life before you even think about trying to save the world! You are nothing but a joke. We wonder why you continue to stay at a place where you are SO unwelcome? }~0

Yeah, Marf, keep up your incessant blathering. Its so easy to get anything passed when you open up your yap. Even your former buddy Ken told you that you do more harm than good for your community. We've read from several bloggers that took the time to write; that although they might not have known what 'a measure' was all about, they would vote opposite of ANYTHING that Marfa was advocating. (And that was just from a few that took the time to write.) Think about all the other detriment that you've caused, that we're not even aware of? Senseless marfa..... }~0
