Stronger front needed to stand up for our rights

Re: Are Cobourg tax­pay­ers re­ally ap­a­thetic, Nov. 9

I be­lieve Mr. Strauss has it right - that many Cobourg res­i­dents are ap­a­thetic - in this case with re­gard to is­sues with our coun­cil. What is needed is a strong front to stand up for our rights.

Mayor Bro­canier not only re­fuses to al­low cit­i­zens to have a voice, does not an­swer e-mails and ap­par­ently was rude to a woman wish­ing to dis­cuss her con­cerns. This is in­ex­cus­able!

Cobourg cit­i­zens pay their taxes, elect their coun­cil and pay their salaries! I be­lieve this

en­ti­tles them to have a voice in town af­fairs.

I think Mr. Strauss has the an­swer - in the next elec­tion we should make sure we vote for peo­ple who are open to giv­ing us an au­di­ence with re­gard to this town’s fu­ture.
