LETTER: Slates versus selections?
Thanks to all who attended the Rossland All Candidates Forum. It was a terrific event; standing room only! Many thanks to the Rotary Club for doing a superb job of organizing and hosting. I hope everyone got a good sense of the candidates and lots of information. Please contact me if you have any other questions.
I wanted to clear up one thing, Jan Micklethwaite, as a registered 3rd party with ElectionsBC, made a list of her selections from the candidates. I was happy to have more publicity about my candidacy, and to see more written about other candidates as well. The candidates are doing their best to get their ideas in front of the public. We are each bringing our own views, ideas and personalities to Council. Jan’s choices represent a good mix of old time residents & more recent arrivals, conservative & progressive values, municipal experience & first timers. They are as diverse and uniquely qualified a bunch of individuals as you are likely to see, but they are only her personal choices.
I am very excited for the next term. Whomever is elected, I believe the next council is sure to be very productive. I trust the wisdom of Rosslanders to pick the most effective council to best serve the community.
Thanks for voting on Nov 15th
