In our local newspapers this week one will find the following letter to the editor…
Ratepayers deserve thanks
With the election and the release of the Municipal Report approaching we would like to express our sincere thanks to the Ratepayer’s Association Executive for their tireless efforts on behalf of the citizens of Crowsnest Pass.
The report would certainly never have happened without the tremendous amount of work they have done.
Thank you also for holding public meetings, issuing press releases, and otherwise making every effort to keep us informed about the activities of our Mayor and Council.
We all owe a huge debt to these dedicated people.
Dick and Susan Burgman
Personally, I can’t disagree with anything here that Dick and Susan said. They are right, this community owes them a huge debt in keeping this mayor, council and administration’s feet to the fire, holding them accountable, and making them aware their every move was being watched and monitored. Because of their actions they probably saved this community from who knows how much more harm which would have otherwise been inflicted upon us by this spend-crazy, out of control, gang of despots and tyrants.
However, as I have already stated in a previous post, they could have and should have done more. While themselves respecting the rules of the democratic process in curtailing their excesses, underhandedness, and the hypocrisy of their right-wing conservative establishment driven agenda. Forgetting ones grassroots beginnings while replacing that which you don’t like or agree with by way of using council’s own disreputable methods is the equivalent of replacing one evil with another evil, which lands up only giving us more of the same old same old… evil.
Please identify one right-wing idea that has moved Crowsnest Pass society forward.
