To the Editor,
Re: Parents angry over logo cost, Sept. 18.
If money is being spent foolishly by foolishly-elected officials, the public should spend more time and attention to who it elects as its board of trustees.
We have to have a say in Nanaimo’s welfare when it comes to the future of our children. Too much money is being spent on frivolous issues in Nanaimo and being given to outsiders. We have talent in Nanaimo, let’s use it.
But until the public takes a more responsible stand in Nanaimo, we will always be nothing but a complaining city with no results – as the past has shown.
More attention has to be given to voting. We just can’t just elect the last person that was in because we do not have the time to check out qualifications.
Take the time to seek out the best person for the job, whether it be school board or municipal – both are the future of Nanaimo and voters should take the time to realize that.
