LET­TERS TO THE EDI­TOR Dis­agree on wards

Seaway News - - Opinion -

Dear Edi­tor, To­tally dis­agree with your per­spec­tive. Lived in ward com­mu­ni­ties most of my adult life and was re­freshed to see Corn­wall’s struc­ture.

Vot­ing for “coun­cil­lors at large” gives city res­i­dents with a say in the to­tal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of their gov­ern­ment. A small city like Corn­wall

Re­ply, Why not Wards?

would suf­fer with ward coun­cil­lors vy­ing for what is best for their lit­tle ward Vs what might be best for Corn­wall over­all.

Corn­wall is small enough so that what is good for one ward for the most­part will be ben­e­fit all. Corn­wall’s struc­ture in­creases the like­li­hood of all pulling to­gether Vs for each fife­dom.
