Aquatic program all over Broward County

Dear Mr. Obama:
I am a person who is proud of USA. I was born in Panama, but now I am Citizen of The United State of America, and a proud father of an eight years old girl named Caroline. I have been working for the last 20 years in Swimming; I am an expert working with children all ages and disabilities candidates in all kind of sport programs especially swimming. My concern is all Park and Recreation Department in every city in Broward County has a lot deficiency; not only for giving a bad customer service to communities, but their programs do not cover the expectation of the majority. Last month in Dade County, Directors of Park and Recreation were fired for unclear procedures and low productivity. I think your personnel need to make a study about this situation; every pool in every city has the potential to generate income three or four time more than now. Cities need professionals that know working with children, be creative, diverse, open, and respect everybody. I wish you can reply to me because parents, swimmers, and everybody deserve the best from our Public facilities, not recreational program with poor goals for our communities. There are several examples of the bad administration and low interest for offering quality services in those department at all levels; for example the City of Pembroke Pines in Broward County leasing most of their pools to a private organizations to run those facilities due to the lack of experience and public service. My idea is to put this Park and Recreation Department on top of the business like private organizations , restructuring the whole department and hiring professional people who really love what they do, and with high standard of Public Service. My program generate the money to offer good salaries and revenues without putting our cities to subside all those facilities which are between 3 to 15 per cities.
