Letter: Elect Dave Dyk to Gresham council
Now that I am retired, I enjoy spending my time caring for our community. As president of the North Gresham Neighborhood Association, I was proud to work with my neighbors to raise funds for a new playground at Kirk Park.
Through service in my neighborhood, I've had the opportunity to work with Dave Dyk, who I am endorsing for Gresham City Council Position No. 5. Dave is the secretary-treasurer of our neighborhood coalition, and has helped the North Gresham association with its website and email list.
Dave has also been an advocate for the establishment of a parks and recreation district. We have a lot of families and children moving into Gresham who need access to open spaces and recreation programs.
It is not a reasonable or equitable model for every neighborhood to raise funds for their own park amenities.
Dave works hard and is open to the ideas of others, and will serve all of the neighborhoods of Gresham.
