Re: Greg Neiman’s column regarding Lacombe (Elected to make decisions, Oct. 30):
Mr. Neiman, it was with amusement that I read your editorial about Lacombe and the Lacombe Taxpayers’ Association.
Have you lived in Lacombe recently, Mr. Neiman?
Have you tried to deal with this council and administration, Mr. Neiman?
Or, as I suspect you have not, and you are sitting in Red Deer, thinking how clever you are and how, by some wisdom bestowed upon you, you magically know everything about everything about what goes on in Lacombe, with this council, and with this administration, and with the Lacombe Taxpayers’ Association.
For you to stupidly spit out facts from a survey on the taxpayers’ satisfaction about the City of Red Deer, and think that that somehow has anything whatsoever to do with what happens in Lacombe, is just that. It’s stupid.
You sir have no idea what you are talking about, but nonetheless, you felt compelled to speak out.
Comparing Red Deer city council and administration to Lacombe council and administration is ludicrous.
Next time before your newspaper has a front page story on an article on a Monday, and then have somebody like you criticize others about that article on Tuesday, perhaps, you should actually have some idea about what you are talking about.
That would be so much more productive and informative to your readers.
In your column, you also complain about the recent flood of complaints from citizens to Red Deer city council over bike lanes in Red Deer, and other complaints that they had.
Perhaps you would prefer it if citizens were not allowed to voice their opinions at all. Would that suit you better, Mr. Neiman?
