Courtenay councillors ‘acting like spoiled, entitled brats’

Dear editor,

Re: Councillors uniting to authorize mass attendance at convention.

This is disgraceful.

Dear editor,

Re: Councillors uniting to authorize mass attendance at convention.

This is disgraceful. Shame on our city councillors who are acting like spoiled, entitled brats.

Remember, you serve at the pleasure of the taxpayers, people like me — and many others who are appalled at the greedy, brazen sense of entitlement you think you have.

This is a boondoggle, and unnecessary, waste of money.

Everyone knows that the real business at these conferences gets done in the back rooms by the executive and everyone else is there to pass their flimsy motions and get down to the fun and games.

I know — I’ve been to many such conferences.

Mayor Larry Jangula is right. Take turns, two at a time, once a year each, and report back to council what you attended and what you learned.

In lean fiscal times, “accountability” is the key word.

Think again! You are there to serve.

Georgia McLellan,

Comox Valley
