Tanglewilde Parks and Recreation District No. 1 - Commissioner, Position No. 1


Parks and Recreation Districts - State law allows for the formation of parks and recreation districts as municipal corporations for the purpose of providing recreational activities of a non-profit nature as a public service to the residents of the geographical areas included within district boundaries. Parks district commissions consist of a five-member nonpartisan board elected within the jurisdiction to serve staggered four-year terms. These districts may acquire properties, make contracts, establish fees, make rules governing park properties, and manage and operate facilities according to RCW 36.69.130. They may also impose property taxes, establish local improvement districts, and issue revenue bonds, subject to the restrictions contained in RCW chapter 36.69.

All parks and recreation positions are nonpartisan.

  Only voters residing within the Tanglewilde Parks and Recreation District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.

John Pirie

As a candidate for commissioner of Tanglewilde Parks and Recreation I am aware that our job is to make sure that your levy monies are used wisely. Commissioners receive no salary for their work so that 100% of your levy monies can be used to maintain the parks and the pool. Commissioners can advise the TRC board on the operation of parks and pool but our sole mandate is to make sure that your levy money is spent wisely and there is accounting for each dollar. A Commissioner cannot spend money; they only authorize payments to the TRC board to spend on the parks and pool. Thank you for your support.

John Pirie candidate for Commissioner Position 1.

Ballots will begin arriving October 17, 2013. If you have not received your ballot by October 24,
