So lets look at Ward 1:
Mr. Lamont is an incumbant that knows everything about, trash, bootlegging, bear containers and how to be a Good Old Boy! He also has extensive knowledge about mileage, how to inflate expenses and not get caught. How to make a committee of two look like four.
He does have experience in undermining a Mayor and Council as a whole. He lives in Red Bay and was responsible for the invention of the term “Red Bay Bandits”. Suffice to say “Wave Away Wray” has experience, most of it bad.
Now there’s a pistol! Ana stands her ground, makes her point and delivers what she says. A little cantankerous from time to time but does exactly what she says she is going to do! Ana is a women of her word and calls a spade a spade.
Not favoured by the Red Bay Bandits and has been known to rant and rave from time to time but she is honest! She stand up for what is right and doesn’t pretend to be politically correct 100% of the time.
I have no trouble supporting Ana, cause she has gonads!
Vivian is direct to the point, and operates in a no nonsense sort of way. She firmly believes in a Christian way of life and is willing to listen. Albeit she holds here cards pretty close to her vest, she is generally to the point. I doubt she will put up with the antics that Gwen Gilbert had to experience and I think overall she will be good for the Community. An accounting background which will be helpful given the situation in the town at this point. She didn’t make it to the meeting in Sauble, not that she missed much.
I think Vivian would be a great Council member.
Now Paul is a local businessman second generation. His family has a history in politics but hasn’t really said much as to what he hopes to accomplish. Besides the usual taxes are to high and the old Council was fighting too much it appears he has no agenda either hidden or otherwise.
Big Jim Turner is well known as a person that is active both in the community and at Council. He is not afraid to voice his opinion and does have a tendency to piss people off. He is a supporter of John Close as Mayor, which cost’s him points in this camp. He and Gwen Gilbert are like oil and water, however I think they could work together.
I know Jim and I would support him. I know he can be a little aggressive but he is honest and keeps his word in spades.
Although I have never talk with Pat, she appears to be intelligent. I think, by way of reputation, that she is a tree huger that has been transplanted in this area from Mississauga. I think she is associated with the pinko’s in Sauble saving the Plover and the shore line. Doesn’t ring a lot of bells in my sandbox.
There ya go! My two cents worth!
