To the Editor:

The headline for this article is very misleading. The headline states “Parks fees get majority support”. The article goes on to state that there were 1,102 surveys returned from Keizer’s “roughly” 14,300 households. Using these numbers that is a return rate of less than  8% of the total households. Marion County Elections reported on March 8, 2017 that Keizer had 19,483 households which takes the return rate down to 5%. Marion County also reported that Keizer has 23,357 registered voters. I can not understand how this survey would represent the majority of Keizer.
