I would only donate if I get to swim in it

The Smithfield Herald reports:
A new campaign is under way to raise money for the Smithfield Recreation & Aquatics Center.

Hey, wait a minute...my money IS going into this facility!
The town is planning to spend $485,000 from a county recreation bond and $450,000 from the sale of Bingham Park to Johnston Memorial Hospital. It already has a $500,000 grant from the state’s Parks and Recreation Trust Fund.
So my tax dollars to both the state and county are going into this facility. Every doggone tax payer in Johnston County should be able to use this facility FREE of charge, then. I want to do some laps when it is finished.
