Vote for aquatic center


We moved to West Linn in 2011 from Battle Ground, but we are originally from England. We were drawn to the community because of its friendly neighborhood feel, willingness to invest in the future — primarily schools.

Swim lessons have been limited to summer days in an outdoor pool or driving outside of our own community and spending money elsewhere. We drive 25 minutes to the Southwest Community Center. We love programs they offer and happily pay the fees.

A year-round community facility where we can keep healthy and our 12-year-old son can meet up with friends at an indoor pool right here would be fantastic. We would rather pay fees to West Linn then to Southwest Portland. Voting yes on November’s ballot measure 3-432 is something we can’t do since we’re not yet U.S. citizens. Yet, we will gladly help to pay for the construction of this facility.

It reaffirms West Linn’s continued vision and its willingness to invest in the future to the benefit of all, which is why we chose to live here in the first place. Build the future, strengthen our community and vote yes on 3-432.
