State Rep. Chris Reykdal is says he would like to begin a study that will conclude that the state of Washington should change ownership of Sylvester Park to the city of Olympia. He infers that $100,000 a year is an unfair burden upon the state’s taxpayers.
Rep. Reykdal assists the state’s elected officials in budgeting Washington state’s monies – an annual budget of about $105 million each day.
How would Rep. Reykdal prefer to spend $100,000 of the annual budget instead of on the maintenance of Sylvester Park? Spending $274 each day seems like a lot of dough to me, but if I were managing a hundred million each day I cannot imagine 274 buckeroos making a front page story.
