To the editor:
Bart Rierson has served his community generously as a city councilor, city budget committee member, Chehalem Park and Recreation District (CPRD) budget committee member and currently a CPRD board member. He is also a board member for the Willamette Riverkeepers.
With his experience and passion, Bart should be re-elected to the CPRD board.
His love of the community and our natural resources is probably best exemplified by his championing of the Chehalem Paddle Launch. Bart dedicated countless hours to the project which became a popular addition to our recreational offering and a way for many to access and enjoy our river. He now advocates diligently for the launches' return.
We are fortunate to be represented by a person of Bart's dedication, experience and character. Please re-elect Bart Rierson.
Rick Rogers, Newberg
