I want a voice

Every elector in this city should have the opportunity to mark a ballot expressing their wishes in this matter

I am writing this letter express my profound disagreement with City Council’s adoption of the above borrowing By-Laws (totaling $15,000,000.00) without going to referendum.

I, for one, want a voice in how the city decides to spend tax-payer’s money.  Every elector in this city should have the opportunity to mark a ballot expressing their wishes in this matter, rather than letting council only make the decisions.

An elector has to be 18 years of age or older, a Canadian citizen, lived in B.C. for six months and lived in the City of Campbell River for 30 days before signing the forms.

To that end I am encouraging all electors in the City to get the forms (2 for each person – one for each By-law) complete them and get them delivered to City Hall not later than  Sept. 23 at 4:30 p.m.  In fact, have them delivered earlier than that if you possibly  can.

If anyone requires forms I will provide them and have them delivered to city hall for you.  Just call me at 250-203-1741, and if busy leave a message,  and I will arrange to have forms provided and delivered for you.
