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.
