Editor, The Times:
I note in the May 16 Boundary Creek Times that Councillor Rotvold questioned the statement I made in an earlier letter to council regarding the fiasco with the Midway Volunteer Fire Department’s radio frequency.
I voiced an opinion about councillors acting on behalf of Midway council, (i.e. the citizens of Midway) at inter-agency meetings. Councillor Rotvold seems to think I was specifically questioning her lack of reporting.
Councillor Rotvold should re-read that letter as I did not identify any specific councillor or any specific inter-agency; however, as the old adage says, “if the shoe fits…”.
Also I want to emphasize that I am more concerned with councillors taking their direction from council as a whole when they attend these inter-agency meetings and representing us rather than acting on their own volition. Again, I’m not targeting anyone specific, only reiterating a basic premise that we as taxpayers expect of any elected official – municipal, provincial and national!
It appears we mere citizens/taxpayers are unable to express our thoughts without an overreaction from those we elect to SERVE US!
I for one will not sit by and keep my mouth shut!
