I have called Oakdale my home for 26 years and will continue to call Oakdale my home for many more years, which is why I support Measure Y. I want Oakdale to continue to be a clean and safe community. Where families like mine can enjoy the parks and the city pool and attend events at our Gene Bianchi Community Center and Gladys Lemmons Senior Community Center. Where our 55+ citizens can have a healthy lunch five days a week, exercise, and socialize at the Senior Center, where I someday will probably go to volunteer and participate. For those who already support Measure Y, thank you. Those who don’t or haven’t decided, all I ask is that you think of all the things our community will lose if you do not support Measure Y.
