  1. Should be called SLUSH Fund just more money for the commissioners to waste. We do not need a water park. WE had a state of the arts Marina but with no money to fix and repair it , it is now in terrible shape They need to take care of what we have instead of always building new stuff

  3. If the commissioners want voters to vote in this proposal then they should require a fair vote, i.e. picture ID, No mail in ballots (other than legitimate absentee ballots), and proper poll watchers. Do they really want a fait vote?
