Hope voters are ‘open minded’ if mayor seeks re-election
Re: ‘Mayor defends expensing $600 Tory fundraiuser ticket to taxpayers,’ June 11
Seldom do I have an opportunity to quote famous Irish playwrights, but your story on Mayor Ric McGee and his use of public money for personal, private gain has given me that opportunity.
George Bernard Shaw was the son of a civil servant and I'm going to suggest that some talk of public service happened around the Shaw dinner table. According to the article, when mayor McGee was confronted with the ethics of his actions, he became defensive and would have us believe that we are being "small minded" for questioning his actions. Here is what Mr. Shaw has to say to this:
“When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.”
I cannot add anything more to this conversation. Let's hope voters are a little 'open minded' when Mr. McGee seeks re-election.
