CORNWALL ONTARIO – As many regular CFN viewers know, CFN and its viewers played a strong role in dumping corrupt former Mayor Bob Kilger and half of his council last election.
While the progress in that exercise was getting people to think about issues and take action for change, clearly the mission hasn’t been accomplished. People have to learn that an election should never be a popularity contest and that it really is important to know the issues and educate yourself to get what you want done in a community.
CFN will be supporting candidates that want to truly and honestly cut taxes and waste in this city, but more importantly effect change at city hall by removing the dead wood that has led to the higher taxes. Too many of those on this current council are simply using the position to line their own pockets or step up the cronyism ladder.
It’s time to not elect people based on who their dad is; or see partisan politics enter municipal politics.
In the meanwhile as the election drums start to beat towards 2018 we are going to invite our viewers to submit articles and be Cornwall’s 11th Councilor.
