Picking the lesser evil!
Four years ago, I voted for Leslie O’Shaughnessy because Bob Kilger allowed the city to crucify whistleblowers and chose to protect the abusers instead!
So I chose the lesser evil!
My gut at the time knew that O’Shaughnessy would be no different but I took the chance that maybe, just maybe, he would rise above that.
As expected, he used whistleblowers to advance his own agenda. Well O’Shaughnessy, based on your deceit, your time as mayor is limited thankfully. This will be your “Last Call” and hopefully will do us all a favour and step down completely from public office, forever!
Who do you vote for when all three evils have sat on council for years and despite them painting rainbows on shit, like the local papers do, haven’t done anything to improve the lives of the people who share this city like Sunday Bus Service?
Seems the city never has enough money for that!
However, for those who were listening to the debates may have noticed that they are not on the same page especially when it comes to how much money the city has.
Do they get different information, misinterpret the information, or are they not paying attention?
One thing that they do agree on is wasting more tax dollars on an inflated art gallery and a 7% tax increase in the new year. According to Clement, we have no money problems. I guess not when you are free to rape us with tax hikes and not tell the public where our money is going.
Bernadette Clement sits on the “Audit committee.” What does that mean?
This role includes: “having important governance responsibilities related not only to public financial reporting, internal controls and management of financial risks.”
If you are responsible to report to the government, then why hasn’t the cost of a 30 second “fire prevention” video or the millions to protect incompetent managers never been made public? Aren’t you accountable to the public? It explains why Clement doesn’t feel that Cornwall has a money problem yet taxes continue to rise. Which one is it?
She is also proud that she learned that: “SPEAKING UP for others who may not have a voice and standing up for what “I” believe in.” You can’t have it both ways.
For one, you haven’t spoken up for anyone or to anyone so quit fooling the public.
Secondly, your use of the word “I” says that although the public wants one thing, your interest will lie above theirs.
This explains the push for a useless art centre that the public doesn’t want or need. I bet that the centre is the highlight of the steering committee, the one that she sits on. You need to report to the government but not your constituents.
For anyone who wants detailed information are refused an answer and forced to apply for red tape known as “freedom of information act.” What a joke!! Are they hiding their inadequacies??
Who do vote for? The truth is, most people don’t realize that failures within council has an impact on our taxes and is also a reflection of what the city is doing. People are disillusioned when it comes to growth within our city and an art center that will cost us millions isn’t one of them.
After our taxes go up another 7%, more people will be using services like the agape, especially those on a fixed incomes yet bus service won’t be available to them because of costs. But pave the way for a 6 million dollar art center! Ugh! Considering we pay the most taxes in this region with the least service yet people will continue to vote incompetence in!
Clement has been the weakest link on council. Considering she is a lawyer and never acted on any wrongdoing within the city concerns me a great deal!
Vote her out!!
