From the Grinch that Stole Christmas, some New Year’s resolutions for 2024 for city council:
Gain control of the rudderless ship that the Exhibition has become and steer a course that puts money back into the taxpayers’ pockets rather than continuously taking.
Use the new Exhibition building for all your retreats and those of your administration.
Take in a city council meeting in Medicine Hat and learn how they have the lowest tax base per capita in the province.
Attend a Townof Nobleford council meeting to learn how they have managed not to raise their tax base for the last five years. Be relentless in tackling the homelessness problem and the crime that goes with it and clean up the city so that citizens don’t feel like they are being held hostage. Make sure that the police budget is a priority item and doesn’t get cut again as the old council did so that we don’t have a reputation for being a crime capital in Canada.
Remember that the money you are spending belongs to your fellow citizens and they don’t appreciate it when you waste it.
