Calgary Sun - - COMMENT -

Will the mayor, or some­one on coun­cil, ex­plain to the tax­pay­ers why it takes an elec­tion for them to de­cide to lis­ten to the vot­ers. I read (Coun. Sean) Chu’s com­ments (which it seems oth­ers on coun­cil are piling on), and while I com­pletely agree, why voice it now? For the past three years, I, and I’m sure le­gions of oth­ers, have sent many e-mails to this city’s mayor and coun­cil, re­quest­ing they sus­pend this art ini­tia­tive un­til the econ­omy im­proved and they had a bet­ter idea of how to get these funds to lo­cal artists. Did they lis­ten? No. Did they re­ply? No. Did they even seem to care? No. Will I vote for them in Oc­to­ber? No. Have they earned the right to rep­re­sent this city? Em­phat­i­cally no!

KEN AL­BERT (A less-than-shin­ing mo­ment among many from the gang that couldn’t spend straight. They tune out those they dis­agree with ... on ev­ery­thing.)
