Swolgaard is a wise leader on park issues | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

I am writing to endorse Tom Swolgaard’s re-election as a Bainbridge Island Parks District Commissioner.

I am the father of kids ranging from high school to preschool. The parks and the programs at the parks are important to my family, and we’ve fallen in love with the open spaces and trails they manage across the island.

Tom has led on both acquiring and expanding new parks. He is also a voice for continually improving how the parks district serves families.

On a personal note, my son has participated on Scout trips led by Tom. He is committed to serving the young people of this island, and that comes through in everything he does, especially in his work on the parks district commission. Islanders would be wise to elect him for another term of wise leadership, and I will certainly be voting for him.
