Elvena Slump has outdone herself with her letter in the Oct. 28 Western News.
The woman keeps complaining that rural residents fail to pay a user fee for some Penticton white elephants that placed the city and its voting residents in a deep hole — one they dug without seeking any input from we looking in from the outside. This accomplishment of doom and gloom was achieved with the help of the incumbent non-resident mayor who is also head honcho of the RDOS.
As far as Tom Isherwood goes, I will never have need to use your public facilities other than a washroom. I am quite sure Elvena would shy away from some outdoor toilets in Olalla (user fee or not), but she is welcome to use same for nothing.
My wife and I spend thousands of dollars per year in your beautiful city — so park your harp and take your worn-out trumpet to the dump Slump and clam up.
Pentictonites and your elected outsiders made the bed — you know the rest.
