I really object to the tone taken by the “columnist” last week entitled A War Has Begun.
This person is described as a local government consultant who explores “non-traditional” methods to helping towns and cities perform better. Apparently using inflammatory and confrontational language is one of his non-traditional methods.
“A war of taxpayer against taxpayer”, he says. I am a resident of the city and like everyone else, have friends in the regional district. I see no benefit whatsoever to anyone in attempting to create an “us against them” mentality. As to the issue prompting this letter, the regional director wishing to remove building inspection, I support the mayor’s decision and feel anything else would be a step backward.
