Letters to the Editor

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Not convinced by county fairgrounds advocate

Editor,

This letter is in response to the letter by Don Lamontagne about accepting the proposal for the fair grounds.

I’m happy for Don and his acceptance of the proposal. Perhaps if he had shared any of his reasons for trying to convince us of the viability of the project it would have been beneficial. Is he an expert in this sort of thing so that we should accept his opinion based on his opinion alone?

Perhaps he could explain how they plan to overcome the parking problem, or the access problem based on that many people coming to the island that often? Or maybe he can explain away the opinions of the other people who actually are involved in these types of venues and see this as a losing proposition?

He says he wants to “build some memories for the next 90 years.” Let’s hope those memories are not of the fair property that we used to own before it was foreclosed on as a result of this proposal.

Sincerely,

THOM PERMENTER

Seattle
