Rude remarks uncalled for

We have attended the two meetings for the all-candidates forum and find them very enlightening.

We have attended the two meetings for the all-candidates forum and find them very enlightening.

I had written a previous letter to the editor re our ugly duckling civic hall.

There has not been one response to contradict this letter. The only mention of it by any candidate was by Mayor Malcolm MacLeod, who felt it was a good investment for the district. He was the only candidate bad-mouthing the opposition. The first meeting it was against Lorraine March and her previous council. He neglected to mention he was on that council.

The second meeting the target was Darrell Trouton as he stated you should have previous council experience before running for mayor.

These remarks were uncalled for and, I feel, very rude.

A lot of us feel it is time to rid ourselves of this old-boy’s club and put new life in our fine district.

In any event, let’s all get out and vote for whatever you believe in.

Thank you.

Jim West
