Reading the article Icy battle in
east end (Oct. 6), brought no surprise to me as a longtime resident of Ward . I also have been given the icy no-eye-contact attitude from Bill Armstrong because I displayed another councillor’s campaign sign on my lawn many years ago.
Instead of introducing himself or sharing his platform ideas with me at that time, he chose to ignore me during the years, a neighbour and resident of his ward. This behaviour has made me realize I do not want an individual representing me who cannot even look at or talk to me.
I want the candidate who came to my door in the unbearable heat of a summer day, took time to introduce himself, shake my hand and was personable. A candidate who even put on a barbecue so his constituents could socialize and get to know him and his platform. A candidate who took a few minutes to listen to me as a resident of Ward 2. A candidate who seems humble and sounds ready for political office in addressing the issues of Ward 2. This to me is the type of person I want representing me at the table.
It’s time for a change in Ward 2. Debra Bates London
