By Letter to the Editor on February 11, 2020.
I read Maria Fitzpatrick’s letter with absolute disgust. Nathan Neudorf is doing more for Lethbridge than either Fitzpatrick or Phillips ever did. I belong to a group of business people who’ve personally seen our issues taken to the appropriate ministries, and responses given back to us.
Neudorf regularly meets with the mayor and brings those concerns to the appropriate ministers, but remember, they’re busy dealing with the $52-billion fiscal mess the NDP foisted on this province, and policies that sent investors fleeing our province as our credit rating plummeted. Right now, Nathan has been taking calls from across the city, and really needs a UCP MLA in Lethbridge-West to help carry the load, instead of letters like Fitzpatrick’s that sabotage the great work he is doing.
The NDP has led the City of Lethbridge into creating the supervised consumption site (SCS), which is wreaking havoc on businesses and citizens alike, draining City resources, and ignored by the two NDP MLAs, (thankfully one former).
I have a separate letter I’ll write to the City on the waste of money this has been, and will continue to be. Mr. Spearman, I hope the province will no longer go into debt for your agenda, where you’ve ignored the many citizens’ cries to scrap the SCS. Treatment beds should have been there first.
Maria Fitzpatrick received many emails and calls from me, and in four years I received not even one response; I never want her back! Some of those calls required her to lobby for me, so her letter has left me steaming.
Shannon Phillips fulfilled her personal agenda and implemented the new parks and “protected” land programs without consulting many affected interest groups. In fact, Phillips ignored certain requests from opposing parties as her plans were implemented! The NDP followers are now inundating our UCP office with a massive number of frivolous emails and calls. By doing this, they are diverting time and resources from those who really need help. Neudorf’s office is working very hard to deliver help for all the citizens.
