I picked up tonight’s Daily News to find a Letter to the Editor from Mayor Pond. His letter was in reference to a couple of articles last week pertaining to the Rushbrooke Trail project. One of the front page articles featured a couple of citizens concerned with the lack of progress with the repairs to the trail despite the municipality having received provincial funding for the project. Signage posted at the trail indicated that the project was to be completed by June 2008.
In his letter he referred to the citizens as complainers and then compared them to a couple of lazy fairy tale characters.
This mayor has completely lost touch with his constituents. When you start publicly insulting them I would expect that it is time to hang 'em up. He obviously cannot handle the criticism that goes with being in public office. Right now is one of the toughest times for him since being elected into office. Times like these are when you expect a leader to rise above and show his true colours. It sems to me that he has.
