I would like to thank you for a very balanced opinion to the subject of restrooms in neighborhood parks. I was very dismayed to read Mr. Edmondson's blog. The Mayor's position is not one that lends itself to knee jerk reactions without first doing a little background investigation to get the facts. As a former council member I had the distinct honor of serving along side of one of the best Mayor's Lewisville has ever had, Bobbie Mitchell. Her example on how one should conduct themselves in that office should be followed. Always get the facts before stirring the pot...you might get burned if not
There is however some very important issues that have been left out of all of this discussion. Park restrooms in and of themselves are very dangerous places and have NO place in neighborhood parks. For the health, safety and welfare of the citizens they should NEVER be considered. They tend to attract, pedophiles, have been used on numerous occasions for drug transactions and a place to meet and mingle for anonymous sex. This is simply a fact and as a formal council member I worked diligently to see to it that those were not places we built with our tax dollars. They are a public safety nightmare.
