Mayor has open-door policy

Members of the public are welcome to book an appointment with mayor on Tuesdays and Thursdays

Re: The letter “No response” in the Oct. 23 Saanich News. Having trouble contacting Mayor Atwell? He has an open door policy, Tuesdays and Thursdays, when members of the public are welcome to book an appointment to sit down with him and talk through their concerns. We met with him recently and he is available, smart, easy to talk to, a great listener, and really “gets it” about the district.

And he enjoys talking to the public to boot. So, don’t write; drop in and see him. You’ll be glad you did. If you can’t do that, then maybe your concern just isn’t big enough. And, whatever you do, please don’t wish for the old days. Not too many of us want that back.
