CFN – Rumors are that embattled and conflicted mayor Bob Kilger is about to copy a page from his good friend Dalton McGuinty’s playbook and resign have led to heated allegations of infighting of council over who would be interim mayor for the balance of the term; especially over the latest oopsy about who was paying the Mayor’s legal bills for the upcoming May 24th bout with Deputy Fire Chief Rob Hickley’s request for the city to cover his Whistleblowing legal costs. After all; if the city can cover the mayor why not Mr. Hickley; especially if his allegation of Conflict of Interest regarding the mayor’s sons hiring at the Fire Department are true?
The battle lines not surprisingly enough are those in favor of senior councilor Glen Grant (Conservative) and Mayor Kilger’s favorite pet, Bernadette “Bernie Boo Boo” Clement (Liberal). Rumblings are that councilor Denis Thibault could be the deciding vote.
We thought we’d ask the public who they’d like to see as interim mayor from the councilors currently in office. If the mayor finally is shown to be in Conflict that could lead to the entire council having to resign for having violated their Declarations of Office and protecting the mayor instead of the good taxpayers of Cornwall Ontario.
