Hi, My Fellow Community Members,

I am asking you to vote “Yes” on the 5-year Optional Tax Levy for General Operations for North County Recreation District (NCRD) in November. This funding is essential to continue the ongoing programs and offerings such as: Elementary School Swim Program, Childcare, Aquatic/Therapy classes, Fitness Center/Classes, Youth Sports/Camps, Adult Activities, and the Performing Arts Center.

The core of NCRD is the Elementary School Swim Program which is almost a century old. An estimated 12,000 children have been educated in this program and of those children there is no known drowning. This is priceless!

I believe our Community acknowledged the value of these services 5 years ago when the 5 Year Optional tax levy passed by 72.9% – a remarkable number! The Voters spoke resoundingly then, and I again ask for your passionate support this November. The tax rate is the same.

NCRD is an award-winning organization. In 2021, NCRD received the Special Districts Association of Oregon (SDAO) Outstanding Program Award. The current Executive Director, Barbara McCann, received SDAO’s 2021 Outstanding Special District Service Award. These awards reflect that NCRD is a proven leader of Oregon’s 1,000 special districts. NCRD is a vital resource for North Tillamook County contributing to the wellness, quality of life, and economic vitality of the region.

PLEASE vote YES on the 5-year Optional Tax Levy for General Operations for NCRD!

Thank You!

Mary Gallagher
