Atwell a mayor for the people

What we need in the next term is a co-operative council that will work with the mayor to make progress

A recent headline indicates that Richard Atwell’s popularity has increased. Anyone who has taken the time to know and understand should be aware that he is a leader who listens. He wants an accessible and democratic Saanich where government is transparent and people can have their say. An open microphone to council and webcasting are just a few examples of his initiatives.

Atwell got off to a rocky start because of an entrenched council and staff who saw him as the enemy. He was a critic of the flaws in government and an ineffective regional sewage plan. The installation of Spyware is proof of a plot to discredit Atwell before he had a chance to govern in a meaningful way.

The whole truth is not always as it appears in the headlines and the motives of opposing public officials are not always righteous.

What we need in the next term is a co-operative council that will work with the mayor to make progress. We need new councillors with fresh ideas and an unbiased approach. For the citizens and taxpayers of Saanich, that is the best way forward.
