After a citizen raised the issue that the defunding of Catharpin Park was political payback for Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s introduction of a motion to eliminate Supervisor’s political slush funds, Corey took this opportunity to explain how the BOCS is trying to find opportunities to increase the youth recreational opportunities, especially on the eastern side of the county. It’s probably the first time Chairman Stewart has addressed the issue in a public forum, and certainly a rare opportunity to see Chairman Stewart exhibiting such passion about an issue.
Interesting. I hadn’t thought of the idea that adding some additional sports fields on the eastern side of the county would alleviate the capacity issues in the Gainesville District, but I suppose it’s possible. I look forward to seeing what the board comes up with. That solution should provide an opportunity for some rather interesting discussion…
