Sisters Park & Recreation District Position 3

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

Board participation in the budget committee process. Our executive director does an excellent job of providing regular updates on programs through an e-newsletter and in the community newspaper - The Nugget. Engaging with community members on issues of concern whenever possible.
I am proud of what the board has accomplished in the past four years. First and foremost, we hired an excellent executive director who has stepped up to lead the organization through this pandemic. For the first time, we know just how much taxpayer subsidy goes into every program we offer. And we are doing a better job of listening to our constituents.

The board and staff are laser-focused on supporting the community in this time of need. Whether that means taking extraordinary measures to re-open pre-school, creating “Camp SPRD” to support middle-schoolers or lowering program costs, SPRD is there.

Clearly, SPRD is a force for good. If re-elected, I will devote my energies to strengthen three areas. First, continue to assure that our programs are giving taxpayers the most bang for their buck. Second, broaden the types of offerings for teens. Third, revitalize the recreation component of SPRD which has been wiped out by the pandemic.
