CFN Municipal Candidate Reviews For Cornwall CLARKE GARDINER E. MACDONALD FROST

CFN Municipal Candidate Reviews For Cornwall CLARKE GARDINER E. MACDONALD FROST

ballotCFN is reviewing and rating local candidates this election instead of endorsing.

Our next candidates for review are  Pat Clarke, Syd Gardiner, Elaine MacDonald & Brock Frost.

Pat Clarke seems like a nice man.  Sadly he’s a nice man that someone has put up to run for public office; most likely his buddy Glen Grant who’d be looking for another yes vote around the table.

Clarke was part of the Waterfront Committee that moved illegally into a closed door meeting after voting to strike the minutes that stated that CFN was Media in attendance.  To add some irony to that community insult he actually then sent us a press release to announce he was running for council!

Pat was the funniest candidate this campaign as he’d literally use up his two or three minutes telling us who he was related to or what committee he’s on rather than his vision.   It’d be blah blah intro and then the buzzer would go off silencing him.

Ratings are for Perceived Honesty & Integrity, Vision and Action, Accessibility & Accountability, Leadership & Strength, and Win#  

All are on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best.

Syd Gardiner.  Bully, hypocrite, Kilger mouthpiece, allegedly embalmed three years ago, and sadly a proven liar.   In the last election an angry Syd stated that this newspaper only endorsed those that advertised in it which clearly could be seen to not be true in that we endorsed some who didn’t advertise with us and didn’t endorse some that had.

He also tried to destroy protest signs at an actual council meeting and was given a free pass by the CCPS instead of being charged.   Syd’s done.

Elaine represents the worst of Cornwall Ontario’s political culture.  The retired school teacher proudly and openly champions the Agape, of which she’s on the board, in open council in clear conflict of interest.   A bully  (ask Sylvie Lizotte!) but mostly someone who’s clear self serving motivations over run any principles she may have had or has.  Sad as she’s a very smart woman and could do so much to help if she’d just stop wanting to be Kathleen Wynne.

Her latest stunt was the Labour Council endorsements from the process to trying to game the meet and greet for candidates and students at St. Lawrence College.   Sadly may have enough Labour support to gain a credible amount of votes.

The first thing I wrote when Brock announced he was running for council was:

Brock Frost is to politics what Syphilis is to dating.

Watching Frosty the Snowman in action this election has been almost like a Saturday Night Live Skit; but back when the show was still funny.

Step 1) Announce he’s giving his salary to charity of elected   Step 2) Bring Kisses to Seniors for photo opp  Step 3) Buy a floundering hockey team spreading the word of hope while trashing previous ownership   Step 4) Flee from speaking at all Candidate events and making false claims about illnesses.

Yup.  That very brief slip where Conan O’Brien was part of SNL would’ve made a great piece for the comic.

Allegedly is suing myself or CFN; but for what we’re not sure…..  Apparently isn’t in Canada at the same time as Mickey Woods….I have no idea why?

Gotta love his videos!

Sadly this wacky guy may get elected.  It almost make this writer want to make Alec Baldwin like comments…
