Current Mayor Jack Mussallem has upped the rhetoric yet again with his latest ad buy with allegations that all mayoralty candidates but him lack experience.
A screen shot of the ad and commentary can be found in this North Coast Review article: < northcoastreview.blogspot.ca/201 … ience.html >.
“No other mayoral candidate has ever been mayor.” Yes, we are aware of that, Jack, and once upon a time, in case you’ve forgotten, you had never been a mayor either. That seems so long ago.
Obviously directed at Lee Brain: "One mayoral candidate has never been elected to council’. Hardly breathtaking news, but again Jack, in case you have forgotten, you too had never been elected to council before being elected mayor.
“Can our city at this time, withstand the delay while one of them learns”. That’s a loaded question, of course, and “one of them” obviously includes Sheila Gordon-Payne and Tony Briglio. Actually, Jack, if elected Sheila or Tony would bring more council experience than you had when you were elected in 1993 and even when you were elected again in 2008.
Time for a change. Time for a fresh look at things. Negotiating in private is fine, but there is no need to be incorporating a company, transferring City land, and approving a deal with an energy company behind closed doors. That’s not good government.
