Vote yes ­– don’t let perfect be the enemy of very good

Dear Editor,
I am writing in support of the Rec Bond. After a year and a half of public meetings and countless hours of staff and volunteer research and planning, the county has put together a well thought out package of recreation projects. These facilities will help meet the needs of young families, student athletes and adults of all ages. They will also help increase our property values, benefit our schools and make Los Alamos a more attractive place to live for new hires to the Lab.
I believe passing the recreation bond will help move Los Alamos county forward. It’s very unlikely that my family will use every facility regularly and that¹s OK.  However, they will provide many residents and visitors with new and better recreation options, and that makes Los Alamos a stronger, healthier community.
Is the plan perfect? Probably not, but that is an impossible standard to meet when trying to meet the needs and wants of all kinds of stakeholders.
This is, however, a very good plan to upgrade our recreation options. Please don’t let Perfect be the enemy of Very Good. Vote yes for the Rec Bond.
