Letter: Dalziel didn’t fit somehow

Robin Dalziel was dismissed because he did not fit, somehow or some way, with the new council and mayor,w rites Byron Goch.

Robin Dalziel was dismissed because he did not fit, somehow or some way, with the new council and mayor. That, people, is politics.

You can bet that Mr. Dalziel’s contact had such formalities written in to it. Don’t get me wrong, I like Robin personally; however, there was obviously a clash.

We have a mayor with a very successful business background managing projects worth millions of dollars. I may not always agree with him or council but at least they are not afraid to change what they don’t like.

I asked this question before the last election in this paper. Fall of 2014, “What has council done to make a difference other than maintain presence on the necessary committees?”

That was pointed at the last council and could be carried to previous councils.

In their defence though, they have been criticized for suggesting change and criticized for not making change (outside of the water question which I have researched and appose). Quite a contradiction.

Perhaps that is why Greenwood is not the destination city it could be, or deserves to be.

– Byron Goch, Greenwood
