Does Chris Stephan have a hidden agenda?

Chris Stephan’s letter to the editor has me puzzled. What is it that caused him to write such a disrespectful letter?

Chris Stephan’s letter to the editor has me puzzled. What is it that caused him to write such a disrespectful letter?

It’s one thing to disagree with the opinions of others but his attack left me wondering why ‘he doth protest so much?’ Do I sense a hidden agenda in his writings?

City councillors represent all citizens of Red Deer and to use his position in such a partisan way is unbecoming to the office.

Historically, municipal politics, while feisty at times, have avoided public disparaging remarks and person attacks. I find it so distressing at the federal and provincial levels when politicians of all stripes race to the bottom, spewing divisiveness and contempt; municipal governments must continue to stay above that fray.

I would like to suggest that a review of the Code of Ethics that councillors adhere to be reread and be applied to the broader field.

The old adage ‘Don’t mess with folks buying ink in bulk’ would also be a good thing to remember.
