Election over, accept it and move on

Interesting that the election for mayor and council is long gone and done with, but the anger of defeat is still boiling over for some.

Interesting that the election for mayor and council is long gone and done with, but the anger of defeat is still boiling over for some.

The citizens of Sicamous had their say. A majority appeared to want change and a new form of accountability.

The new mayor and council are doing just that – working hard for change and accountability.  It will take time for the dust to settle and get things moving at a workable pace for everybody in the district office.

Those who did not win the vote should look at the results again  – the people have spoken. To be so petty as to get into public situations of name-calling, mud-throwing and/or slander at those who won the vote is ridiculous. Elections come and go, and will continue to do just that.

You are adults – come on and act like one. Accept it and move on.
