To the Editor:
WOW! The latest article within the paper from FABGC simply made my blood boil. And everybody who has ever lived in our non-political city needs to be offended too. For over 100 years our city has operated with out politics. So many dwelling in different cities had been envious of our system. Now this new political social gathering is having a fundraiser at no apart from the On line casino to once more combat towards our POA system.
Our 4 POA’s have at all times been open to anybody who wished to be concerned! No fundraising essential. Now you want cash to be a candidate for a volunteer place! Take into consideration that blue shiny mailer that went out to everybody within the village throughout final 12 months’s ugly marketing campaign of bashing our village volunteers. It price 1000’s and who paid for it?
Is that this actually the trail our village needs to be taking place? Is the subsequent step for these Don McLeod hand-picked candidates to begin paying themselves as BOT members and elevating our taxes to take action? And when the individuals which are funding this new political social gathering need their avenue repaved first or a variance, we could also be saying to ourselves “they gave cash to that candidate”. And down the slippery slope we go. Nothing good can come out of getting politics in Backyard Metropolis. I’m urging you NOT to help this group. Be part of your POA and help our village traditions.
