Now that the election is over and things are settling down, there are a few things I would like to clear up about the Bentley petition.
I have been reading the Letters to the Editor over the past few weeks and I feel we all need to step back and have a look at what is really happening.
I am not a friend of the mayor, but as a person who grew up and raised a family in Rimbey, I have to say that since Mayor Dale Barr has been on council, the growth and development we have observed in Rimbey is unprecedented, to say the least.
Although I am a young adult living in Rimbey and have not had much interest in politics thus far, I having been reading the articles submitted by the electoral candidates.
As a newcomer to Rimbey it is hard not to get caught up in the pre-election frenzy with all the issues coming to light.
As Secretary of the Beatty House Heritage Society, I must for purposes of clarification, respond to the letter from Dave Karroll (Sept. 21st edition) in which he referred to individuals attending a meeting at the Beatty House as “cellar dwellers.”
Was the Town of Rimbey’s protocol, policy or code of ethics followed? There may be a conflict of interest or other breakdown in the town management system.
Sheldon Ibbotson expressed an opinion. I believe that in Canada we still have a freedom of speech in our Constitution and the right to question authority and voice opinions about right and wrong.
My observation is that too many mayors, reeves and councillors tend to think they are indispensable.
Rimbey’s local purchase policy is intended to ensure that all local businesses have an opportunity to participate, on a competitive basis, in the supply of materials, equipment and services required by the Town of Rimbey.
The rest of the statement I started above is: Figures don’t lie, but liars and those with special agendas will manipulate figures to their own understanding and advantage. I am not calling anyone a liar, and most certainly invite sincere questions about council’s actions.
I would like to congratulate Adam Eisenbarth on the quality of his reporting in the Rimbey Review this summer.
eading the Rimbey Review over the last couple of weeks, I was a bit intrigued to learn of a number of questionable decisions made by the mayor and council.
