Letter: Ashamed of those who voted Liberal or NDP

Neither party has ever put the people or the province ahead of their ambitions and desires

Ashamed of those who voted Liberal or NDP

Did many Penticton voters elect and re-elect Dan Ashton to city council?

Did they pay attention to what he did or didn’t do? Did they vote him MLA because they liked what he did or did they decide to cast him out of Penticton and inflict their mistake on the rest of British Columbia?

Yes, he did this and he did that, except did he really do all that he claims to have done or does he have a gigantic ego and a gift for wrongly taking credit for things?

In my first Penticton riding election, I was faced with two bad choices in Ashton and Tarik Sayeed and a late newcomer in the Green candidate. I am thankful that Sayeed wasn’t elected considering he has let down Penticton, but why would anyone vote for Ashton and why did Elvena Slump practically endorse him? So he shows some common sense and listens to her but has he done right by Penticton or this province?

He hasn’t shown leadership on the parks issue here in Penticton and in the Okanagan and barely got in the game when the schools were being closed.

Frankly, I am ashamed of those people who voted for the Liberals or the NDP when neither party has ever put the people or the province ahead of their ambitions and desires.
