CFN – Dear editor:
Whatever is the matter with the deputy mayor of South Stormont? She appears to be against everything that is good in the municipality.
Just look a her recent complaints: she found fault with the very pretty new signs at the entrance to our beautiful Long Sault Parkway; she found fault with the animal lovers who take responsibility for the natural actions of their pets, complaining they were disposing of the droppings into public garbage bins – to the best of my knowledge there had been no formal complaint to the Council about this.
Now the deputy mayor is finding fault in the municipality for not charging its employees for the alcoholic drinks they get at their annual Christmas event.
The deputy mayor has no problem with the free drinks she gets at the various functions she attends yet objects to the employees having a similar opportunity. This is absolutely shameful because the cost of this small ‘Thank you’ to the people who serve us so very well for the whole year hardly adds a few cents to our tax bills.
When we look at all the millions of dollars being paid, in bonuses, to some people working for banks and financial institutions it is pathetic for the deputy mayor of our municipality to want to deny the workers we employ some small token of our esteem for the work they have performed so very well for us.
