LETTERS: Three more years

I’m not sure if many of us can take another three years of this city council.

Close to a year ago, the city council election signs were out with such slogans as “Energize our council” and “Role model” to name two. Now the reality seems more like “Ram it through and who cares.”

Has anyone on council looked at the possibility of recouping any dollars from the tile company that we bought from for the pool? Surely there is some kind of performance guarantee of some sort?

And with the hotel proposals for behind the SOEC (or vicinity) it’s now at a third request. Sounds an awful lot like they are already working with a developer and just buying time to get them a chance to bid. Sounds set up. And smells a lot like a Dan Ashton maneuver. I’m not sure if many of us can take another three years of this.
