Expert advocates new pool

-A A +A

The leisure pool addition to the Aquatic Center is a true multi-generational facility.
As a Red Cross Water Safety instructor/trainer for 25 years in Los Alamos, I have some considerable experience in the teaching of basic swimming techniques through life saving, to the very young as well as the senior citizenry.  
Too many times have I heard “it is too cold — I am going to leave.”  
All ages will have the warm temperature to water-walk or swim and take a swim class with relaxed, pliant muscles in water temperature conducive to learning.  
Therefore I am asking that all residents to seriously consider this election and vote YES for this leisure pool addition.
