Opposite experiences

I wrote the former mayor countless times and didn’t hear even a peep back from him during his long reign

In response to Sarah Wakefield’s comment (Saanich News Oct. 23) about how she feels ignored by the current mayor and how Frank Leonard replied to her letters: “I must admit, I miss the connection Mayor Frank Leonard afforded me with my concerns.”

Well Sarah, I experienced the opposite. I wrote Frank Leonard countless times and didn’t hear even a peep back from him during his long reign. As well, for the Saanich News to print something from someone who wrote two letters and didn’t hear back seems petty. There is so much going on in our community that is more print-worthy than two letters that didn’t get a reply.
