A Brief Footnote from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper –
In the almost 40 years this journalist has been following municipal politics in this Niagara region, I believe these October 22nd municipal elections are the most important ones we have had in terms of what is at stake for our lives, jobs and communities.
We have never had a Niagara regional council with as many bullies and uncivil characters on it, carrying on in ways that are an embarrassment and disservice to all of us. Some of their scandalous antics have generated headlines that have disgraced our region from cost to coast.
I’ve covered this council and I believe that A Better Niagara’s lists of who to vote for and who to boot out are on the mark.
Please review them careful and for the sake of yourselves, your families and your neighbours, GO OUT AND VOTE!
