I won’t vote for you again

I am writing with concern to our street cleaning in Red Deer. This is totally unacceptable for anyone who has to drive in it.

I am writing with concern to our street cleaning in Red Deer. This is totally unacceptable for anyone who has to drive in it.

I won’t have a car left, these streets are so rough.

I know I share this opinion with many others. We have to pack our garbage to the front, because they can’t clean the back alleys. What about the people who have garages that they have to go down the back alley to reach?

Then to top it off they want to build $90-million pool. It is only one hour to Edmonton or Calgary. We do not need a $90-million pool!

We obviously voted the wrong people in to look after this city because all they appear to care about is their paycheques. They don’t care if people can’t get to work because the city roads haven’t been plowed yet.

Why not hire some extra contractors if they can’t handle the job?

I have seen winters in the 1970s that we had much more snow than this but the county worked day and night to get the work done. I never missed one day of work because I couldn’t get out.

I think it all comes back to the City Hall. They promise lots but an elderly person who has to back out and drive on the back alley could get stuck and be in terrible trouble.

We could get lots of snow and storms yet. I’d like to know what they will do then.

This city has grown as much. They have much more revenue coming in so what do they do with all that extra money? I’m sure they give themselves a good salary. How about looking after our seniors who built this city?
