Once again, the rest rooms at the South Side Complex have been inexplicably locked. While it is obvious that you have no desire to maintain the field, there are many people who do enjoy using the ball fields in spite of your neglect. During your campaign in the primary election, you bragged that city residents now have somewhere to go. You were no doubt referring to your pet projects of Nay Aug and Weston Field, because I can assure you, when the rest rooms at the South Side Complex are locked, the only place for us to go is in the woods. I doubt that’s what you meant by “having somewhere to go.”
On behalf of the people who use the field and pay the city league fees which should be used to maintain the field and its property, please unlock, clean, and maintain the restrooms.
A turn of the key, an occasional broom and/or mop, a light bulb now and then, especially in the men’s room, and a fresh roll or two of toilet paper is surely not too much to ask. If you refuse to maintain the field otherwise, at least give us the dignity of not having to relieve ourselves in the woods like animals. Voting, taxpaying animals.

How’s that for a letter to the editor?
