I wish to note a major omission in the piece strategically submitted by Vesna Higham in the Red Deer Advocate on Oct. 19.
She so aptly noted all the great attributes of the two ladies running for the mayoral office but she obviously neglected to thoroughly review the resumes of the candidates. Among all the wonderful attributes of Tara Veer and Cindy Jefferies, she forgot to mention the one main attribute on Tara Veer’s website, common sense. I believe she may have neglected the other candidates as well when she said they “lacked sufficient political experience.”
Jefferies and Veer got a lot of “political experience” at the expense of the Red Deer taxpayers. I can’t quite figure out who used who on Oct. 19 in the Advocate, but these days, as long as it is consensual, and achieves the desired effect, it is OK, I guess.
