We are writing in support of the candidacies of June Stromberg and JudyAnn Dugan for re-election to the board of directors of the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation district.
Their service on the board has contributed greatly to the superb service the district has provided to the community. We have benefited directly in our use of the pool and weight room (run by the district), and attendance at AARP meetings, driver safety classes, garden club, garden shows, wellness fairs and many other local events held in the community center managed by the district.
In fact, our pre-move visits to the pool and community center were factors in our decision to retire to Seaside in August 2000. Our initial impressions that we would benefit from the district's work have proven to be correct. The well-run district has contributed greatly to our enjoyment of retirement.
We urge all voters to vote for these candidates May 15 so the excellent direction provided by the board can continue.
