Letter to the editor 1, Nov. 24, 2016
Former Hudson Councillor Robert Spencer
The toxic letter last week accusing former Councillor Robert Spencer of making false accusations against the mayor was downright rude and based on fictional ideas regarding the suspension of the ex-Director General.
I defend Mr. Spencer's actions, as do many other citizens, who, when wrongdoing is perceived, feel it is their duty to act and voice their concerns. The courts then decide whether or not they have cause enough to investigate which is why they did proceed with the case. Frivolous accusations wouldn't warrant proceeding.
As for legal fees, I’m sure the town has insurance to cover most of these costs. I wonder what the legal fees were for the Sheehan case, before that case was finally settled out of court?
Let's get back to the basics in our town: roads, water and sewers, as unglamorous as they seem, these things are what citizens want.
