Letter to the Editor: Vote Werbel, Murphy, Smith for rec and park district

As president of the Truckee Aquatic Coalition, I am endorsing Kevin Murphy, Peter Werbel and Cindy Smith for the TDRPD Board. Under Murphy and Werbeland#8217;s leadership, TDRPD has twice been voted the best district in the state, affirming their representative and fiscally responsible approach.

These candidates recognize the potential benefit to the community of the new Truckee Aquatic Center. The retirement of our nearly 40-year-old pool would provide increased opportunity for year-round competitive and recreational programs, group therapy for seniors and economic benefit through aquatic competitions hosted during the shoulder seasons. As it should be, the cost benefit analysis of the facility will ultimately rest with the voters. Without Murphy, Werbel and Smithand#8217;s leadership, the community will not get the opportunity to make that determination.
