I want to applaud Mr. Hoffmans proposed solution to the graffiti problem that we are currently experiencing in Marysville. He is very generous to offer public and private property as a canvas for our young budding artists. I think he should take the lead in this bold and groundbreaking outreach program and offer up his residence to these artists as a token of his sincerity and commitment to the mastery of their skills. I am sure he will be proud to see every square inch of his property tagged with vulgar language and images that would not be appropriate to comment on. There are many people in this community, such as myself, who are very proud of their parks and businesses, who do not consider it a plausible solution to let vandals paint the whole town.
