We are a group of Camas residents, homeowners, business owners, and taxpayers unified AGAINST the proposed $78 million pool bond. It's too expensive, services a small fraction of our City, and is not an effective use of our limited tax dollars. Thanks for joining our Team of Neighbors!
As you know, we're less than 2 months away from deciding a $78 million bond proposal to build a $72 million pool. Let that sink in. Camas, WA; population 23,700, a sleepy little mill town on the Columbia River- is set to build the most expensive municipal swimming facility in Washington state history.
The proponents have rushed to place this bond on the 2019 ballot because they expect a low voter turnout. No marquis Federal or State races, in addition to most Camas City Council candidates running unopposed, make it easier for proponents to surpass the required super-majority of 60% plus 1.
We MUST educate as many residents as quickly as we can- and let them know what's really at stake. That's where you come in!
Please share the materials, links, and stories from our website and Facebook pages as often as possible. We add relevant content daily. Include your own opinions when you share, so your friends and neighbors can know where you stand. Engage, like, and comment often- as your activity breeds new activity from others.
We always need content. Write and submit articles, links, comments, and letters to the editors- encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same. Utilize all the website has to offer.
We need volunteers to help canvas neighborhoods in October and talk face to face with their neighbors.
We need money to buy yard signs, newspaper ads, FB promotion, and 2 costly mailers. The City will spend almost $70,000 to promote passage of this bond.
We need folks to show up at Council meetings, Parks and Rec Meetings, and Open Houses to demand answers to legitimate questions.
We need each supporter to call 5 Camas resident friends and educate them on this important ballot issue.
But most importantly, we need you to Vote NO and send a clear message that $72 million for a new pool in Camas is simply TOO MUCH!
Welcome to the Team!
