Ahhhh, the shudder was for another sinclair column. Smile

Because judy does not stand a sniff at getting elected mayor. Ever. The peeps running for mayor next time will be higher calibre than the past two elections.

Ugh...all this means is Sammy will run again if she runs...

Wonderful.

Magical.

I think voter apathy will hit an all time high should we get another repeat with the same boring candidates.

The problem with running a mayor who has the right ideas is that no one likes to hear those ideas if they have the words "Reduced Services, Tax Increases, Cuts to spending, and anything else that cuts into what people feel the city should be giving them because we are tax payers..."

The people of this City, Province, Country, need to understand that there is only a finite amount of tax dollars to spend on the number of programs available. The city is living beyond its means. We have over 4 Billion Dollars in infrastructure to fix or replace. In order to fix these things something has to give.

When will people in this province and city get the idea that we simply can not afford an NDP government at any level. Debt is the problem and the NDP have no concept of how to control it. Its like they all figure that someone else will bail them out. Sure tax the corporations and see them flee, then who is going to carry the tax burden. I get so pissed off with that kind of thinking.

The city also needs to learn to prioritize its infrastructure replacement. A road in my neighbourhood recently got re-surfaced, not sure why the road was fine before, way better in fact than some major roads in the area.

I don't know who plans these projects but seriously time to look at the roads in order of need.

One of the problem the NDP have now, imo, is that they have funded all kinds of crap in order to gain support from these groups, which translates to votes and workers.

To cut these funds would be to alienate their supporters, so they chose to dick around like they are so fond of doing.
