I applaud our Mayor. At least he has the chutzpah to tell it like should be. Yes, the four councillors can do what they want, but it’s irresponsible!
Not one of the “gang of four” mentioned a tax increase of this magnitude during the election campaign. It’s an insult to all taxpayers for these four to “pick our pockets” whenever they need more money.
Here’s a message: don’t spend what you don’t have. It can be done without service cuts, just delay capital projects to save money. Leave the “wish list at the door and deal with the “absolutely must do and cannot wait” list.
Sell off the 3.5 acres and other city owned land. Don’t give $50,000 to INFilm and don’t fund Rivercorp.
Use your heads and think of seniors on a fixed income. Our Mayor did. Hats off to him.
