Disappointed by candidate
The Editor, I was shocked and disappointed to read Mr. (Brian) Caddell’s comments regarding the road work required due to the Maxville water project. ( The News, August 1, ‘Councillors clash over Maxville roadwork.’)
While I agree that it is necessary to be responsible with our tax dollars, what I read leads me to believe that the water project is on budget, even under budget.
We have been waiting for needed road and sidewalk repairs for 30 years! We’ve been told to “wait until water comes.” Isn’t now the time to get them done? Furthermore, I don’t understand Mr. Caddell’s com- ments that “Maxville is just a village and has dead-end streets and doesn’t need perfect streets.”
I take great offence to that! Maxville is my home. Come spend some time in Maxville, Mr. Caddell. I will introduce you to the best little village you have ever seen, with the most awesome people walking those streets who deserve safe, beautiful streets.
These streets will surely lay the groundwork for a prosperous future here in Maxville that will be sure to benefit all of North Glengarry.
As a candidate for deputy mayor, I and many others expect that Mr. Caddell might want to reevaluate his opinion. Cathy Grant, Maxville
