Here we go again with our three-ring circus at city hall.
Because of their contemptuous behaviour, our elected officials dismissed the Ontario ombudsman who has berated them for in-camera meetings. They wish to spend taxpayers dollars to hire a new investigation firm.
The real problem is the four-year term which commenced at the last election.
This is too long.
Just like any organization, when executives stay in office for more than two years, they get too comfortable in their position and do whatever they wish, losing contact with the members and the reality of their position.
Our city officials have lost any sense of reality, have lost connection with the voters of the City of Greater Sudbury and have become too comfortable in their positions.
Municipal governments should be in office no longer than two years before they return to the voters for re-election.
Their comments that Ombudsman Andre Marin was unbelievably rude to them demonstrates that they were humiliated by his observations and illustrates a council that suffers from egomania and narcissism.
After several years, the citizens of this community are still waiting with anticipation for the results of the bus scandal and the return of the $800,000.
After many years of discussion, we are still waiting for the extension of Maley Drive.
The taxpayers of this community are fed up with the the attitude at city hall.
Hopefully everyone in the Greater Sudbury area will sign the petition presented by the Greater Sudbury Taxpayers Association to keep Andre Marin.
