A slate has been operating in Saanich for the last four years. Once there is an existence of two or more people having a common purpose, that is a slate.
For the past four years there has been a slate of incumbent councillors operating at Saanich council to undermine Mayor Atwell and in doing so have undermined any constructive work going forward. One only had to attend a council meeting to see this discord and dysfunction of council. Four years of wasted opportunity to come up with strategies for the good of our municipality.
Kudos to Mayor Atwell for running a campaign slate of candidates agreeing they may vote differently on issues, but agreeing to get along in order to build positive change and direction forward.
