Let’s be honest about the Recreation Committee  wanting you to vote for the commission.  It would let the commission build a YMCA type facility on the south end of State street. That the tax payers would pay for and their hope is it would bring all these people downtown to spend at their businesses. That maybe a good thing,  maybe not.

It would be nice if parents  and others would put as much emphasis on literature and arts as they do sports.  It’s great to learn good sportsmanship and competition, but put some balance in there somewhere.

How many private businesses will be lost over time if the recreation commission is passed? Dance, marial arts and yoga studios come to mind.

Once it becomes the governments job to run our recreation programs volunteers will be even harder to find.

Yes, Augusta needs a Recreation bunch.  We need to be more like Andover and Derby.  Let’s  encourage people to live here.
