Incumbents out of touch

For the first time in my 60-plus years I will be voting in a municipal election.

It would seem that most of the incumbents are out of touch with reality.

They are busy spending our tax dollars convincing us that now is the time we must go hundreds of millions of dollars into debt lest our taps run dry in a few years.

We have all seen estimates spiral out of sight. Maybe it is time to curb new developments – send them over to Mission, they’re closer to the water anyway – plus we are already getting quite congested especially with more malls and high-rises looming.

Maybe it’s time to really  promote rain water catchment and embark on a generous low-flow toilet promotion, to name a few.

No one endorsing this P3 program will be getting my vote.
