What is wrong with our NEW city manager, Eric Swansen? I know he's new to our town and he has many great ideas on how to balance the budget the City of Sunnyside may be going through at this time. But surplus/sell all the sports equipment owned by Sunnyside's Park and Recreation?
Oh my, that would be so wrong! It took years to accumulate the quality of sports equipment that our city manager is willing to auction off or sell.
We the City of Sunnyside just closed the recreation part of Parks and Recreation and I know there are people out there who are still looking to reopen the recreation department and will need that sporting equipment. Please give us, "the City of Sunnyside," a chance to reopen and help our children.
Our children of Sunnyside need organized recreation, such as baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, only to name a few sports kids like to do. Please don't give away what took us so long to accumulate. Don't give up on programs that are/were inexpensive and all children who signed up to play got to play. Help our children of Sunnyside grow and learn to be respectable individuals by having some type of sports to do. Don't give up on them, just because we adults need money.
