Mr. Smith, I am not too sure why you are always so negative towards the Park and Rec. They do so many good things for our town, why don't you take a minute and think about what they offer. Look at the park. People come from all around to visit our park. It really is too bad that you can't see past what ever your agenda is with the current administration, or whoever it is that you have an issue with, and just be proud.
