Letter to the editor 4, Sept. 15, 2016
I would like to say that I agree with Alan Nicol (Your Local Journal, September 8) that the individuals running for election in District 4 should live in the area. Further, I've never seen four of the candidates running at any of the Town Council meetings the first Tuesday of every month. Are they in it for the perks?
We need serious individuals who will fight for our needs and not spend our hard-earned money on buildings, squares, and festivals that we do not need. For one, our taxes do not cover the town's yearly expenses. The only person that attends monthly meetings is Marc-André Esculier, who also questions our mayor on his vast spending.
It's time that our residents take note and come out and vote. We do not need a repeat of the 17 votes short to block the Town Hall project. It's time that the residents attend our monthly meetings and hear what is happening.
We need to take back our town and remind the council that they work for us and not vice versa.
Remember, get out and vote September 25.
