Thank God for Coun. Skelly

RE: Skelly and li­braries

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

Thank God for Coun. Donna Skelly and any of the other fis­cally re­spon­si­ble and lit­er­ate coun­cil­lors. It is a coun­cil­lor’s duty to go through the bud­get line by line and have an open and hon­est de­bate on ev­ery item. Times are chang­ing, and many tra­di­tional li­brary ser­vices have be­come ob­so­lete. If we left the bud­get up to coun­cil mem­bers Ai­dan John­son, Matthew Green and Fred Eisen­berger, you would see 6 to 8 per cent prop­erty tax in­creases yearly, as they have never yet seen a bud­get item that they didn’t fall in love with. As far as the “out­cry” re­gard­ing Skelly’s com­ments from The Spec, just as many who think are com­ments are quite rea­son­able are too busy work­ing to no­tice the day-to-day non-sto­ries com­ing out of the cham­ber. Tay­lor Wy­att, An­caster
