Out of touch with reality

Dear Ms. Mayor,

I emailed yesterday to express my frustration with the city’s bungling of the snow removal.

I came home today to find my 65-year-old neighbor who is a widow trying to deal with the pile left by your grader operator right in front of her driveway (and everyone else’s).

And by the way, she has a shoulder injury and is unable to throw snow. So I helped her deal with it the whole time thinking “What is wrong with these people in City Hall? Are they out of touch with reality?”

You all might as well admit it — you do not have a plan, do you?

This poor woman next door to me is the best neighbour anyone could want and is a tough gal with a rural upbringing and did not complain the whole time.

I, on the other hand, suggest she complain to the city and she said she didn’t think it would help.

You, Ms. Mayor, and city council have zero credibility when you cannot get a proper snow removal policy in place.

It would be nice to be able to tell my aging parents that Red Deer would be a nice city to move to when they are ready to give up their country home but I cannot honestly tell them that.

At least the county they are in plows the county road so they can get out. So I guess if you are a senior citizen or disabled person in Red Deer, you better just stay home.

Pathetic. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

I am going to start a we-want-Mayor-Nenshi online campaign and maybe it will get some traction.

God knows you cant get any traction on the streets of Red Deer.

I am absolutely disgusted.

Darrell Miller
