Dis­ap­pointed by can­di­date

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

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
