Sale of Water Works Park establishes a dangerous precedent allowing the city to sell valuable public space for private development with minimal justification. This means any public space could be a future candidate. That’s why I’m voting YES to protect Port Clinton Parks on November 4th.
Are we a city that wants to sell our public parks to private developers without giving citizens the right to vote on it? Do you want the right to vote on the sale of public parks? YES, I DO! Water Works Park is not “saved” by this initiative. A YES vote simply gives the voters the right to decide its fate. A YES vote ensures it goes to a public vote to let the citizens of Port Clinton decide. It shouldn’t be easy to sell our public parks!
