Letter; Answers please Penticton mayor and council

Please do not shirk you duties to the Penticton taxpayers, and run and hide from the difficult questions.

I would like to hear each council member speak out on how you intend to increase taxation and fees and charge charges to fund the huge deficit.

Which class of taxpayers do you intend to pick the pockets clean?

How did past councils, the current council and city bureaucrats get the residents of Penticton into this financial disaster?

Will you comment on your intentions on any further  reductions in the business multiplier?

Will you comment on whether or not you intend to abandon economic investment zones? If not, why not?

Should the City of Penticton be broken down into different disaster areas, should each disaster area fund their own infrastructure deficit?

If you do not respond in advance, please be prepared individually disclose your intentions when a member of the public poses the question from the floor.

Please do not shirk you duties to the Penticton taxpayers, and run and hide from the difficult questions.
