Gillis con­tin­ues to ‘flog a dead horse’

The Observer (Sarnia) - - OPINION -

Coun. Anne Marie Gillis has, I be­lieve, be­come the “toxic” ele­ment in Sar­nia City Hall, and she pours poi­son into the ears of any who lis­ten.

Mayor Mike Bradley won his po­si­tion by a land­slide, an in­di­ca­tion that the ma­jor­ity of vot­ers de­sire his lead­er­ship and are fed up with Gillis’s cam­paign to drag him through the mud.

As adults we rec­og­nize that some per­son­al­i­ties clash in the work­place. Ob­vi­ously this was the case with the last coun­cil. Rather than deal with it as adults, they de­cided to use the law to bully the mayor. There is no other word for their ac­tions.

They cut the mayor off from com­mu­ni­cat­ing di­rectly with coun­cil. They sus­pended his pay. And in true Don­ald Trump fash­ion, they built an ac­tual wall around him.

Bit of overkill don’t you think? They could have ac­cepted his apol­ogy and got on with work. But no – and how much did all this non­sense cost the tax­pay­ers?

And now, us­ing the bit­ter­ness at her poor show­ing at the polls, Gillis con­tin­ues to flog a dead horse.

It’s a new day Coun. Gillis. Let by­gones be by­gones and let us and our new city coun­cil get down to the busi­ness of run­ning Sar­nia with fresh faces, new ideas and shed the an­i­mos­ity you keep try­ing to gen­er­ate. Shelby Sim Sar­nia
