By Letter to the Editor on January 23, 2018.
The writer that submitted the roast in the Monday, Jan. 15 Lethbridge Herald is misinformed regarding the conflict of interest of a city councillor. All city representatives (mayor and councillors) are held to standards of accountability not only to the voting citizens but to each other.
The mayor, councillors and all elected city officials will abstain from discussion and voting if a conflict of interest arises. Accountability and transparency are expected from the voting public. The process was explicated in a previous Lethbridge Herald article.
City officials were voted in by the public with assurances that we are properly represented in an auspicious manner. Ramblings and musings serve no purpose. To write in a desultory wandering fashion explicitly contradicts the process of how our elected officials function. Our city officials are sworn to a code of conduct and ethics and one would have difficulty finding a breach in the process that’s currently in place. Perhaps the roaster should contact a councillor or city representative to facilitate his concerns.
