New voices needed on councils

This letter is in reference to your article in the July 27 issue of the Rimbey Review, titled, “Speed limits cause concern.”

Dear Editor:

This letter is in reference to your article in the July 27 issue of the Rimbey Review, titled, “Speed limits cause concern.”

I have been a resident of the Rimbey area for 30 years and during that time have driven the Rimbey Main Street many times. I do not for one moment concur with Ponoka County Coun. Gawney Hinkley’s comment that most people go 70km/h in the 50km/h speed zone down the Main Street of Rimbey.

If such a statement had any inkling of validity to it, I am sure the RCMP would be out in full force to bring compliance to the 50km/h speed limit.

Maybe the reason we have not had a bunch of people killed, as Mr. Hinkley has referred to is that the 50km/h speed limit on the Main Street of Rimbey does work.

Municipal elections are coming up this fall. I am going to vote for whom I believe to be the most honest and transparent. This is a tough decision if we do not get some new fresh blood in the system.

If you think you can act as an individual and you can make an honest and positive difference to our municipal governments, please enter your name for nomination.

Aubrey Finnen,

Box 1057 Rimbey
