To the Editor:

A mayor and council that cannot leave well enough alone is what we have got, it seems.

The choice of placement of The Big Toy was for children’s safety which is very obvious to me.

I find it so hard to understand why after all the effort that has been laid out by committees and local groups, to build this for the children of Keizer, a change of location would even come up.

They have got a commitment from one of the local service groups that is well known for getting things done, the Rotary Club of Keizer. I find it to be a slap in the face to the many hard working groups that are ready go with the current location. My advice is that of my late mother:  “Leave well enough alone.”

If you keep changing things around you are going to do more than just tick some people off, you’re going to loose the trust of a lot of people here in Keizer.
