Jane Mitchell has grit

Re: Are we mak­ing room for new­com­ers and new ideas? — Oct. 9

Beisan Zubi is un­doubt­edly well qual­i­fied to run for Kitch­ener coun­cil. How­ever, I am won­der­ing when she sug­gested Jane Mitchell should move over so that younger can­di­dates be given a chance, whether she would have made the same sug­ges­tion to a 65-year-old man with many years of ex­pe­ri­ence. I think not. Jane Mitchell has con­trib­uted greatly to our com­mu­nity. Among her many ac­com­plish­ments was the sup­port for more qual­ity child care when many other politi­cians didn’t care. Given her grit and ex­pe­ri­ence she still has much to of­fer. Per­haps, Ms. Zubi should slow down. Her time will come I am sure.
