question of the week

Survey results are meant for general information only, and are not based on recognised statistical methods.

It’s all about leadership



The discussion around the George Hotel seems to invoke strong emotions on both sides of the issue, and†this†can often lead to misinformation, intentional or otherwise. It can also mean that the smallest of issues around such a project magnify out of proportion.

Someone has to sort through all this information intelligently. That would be our elected officials.

This letter†is about leadership. Mayor and council will, at some point,†be tasked with the question: is this a project that benefits our community as a whole?

In my opinion, leadership is not about following the loudest voices or responding†to the faces you see most often. Leadership is†about having a vision†and the courage of your convictions. It is the mayor and councilís obligation to listen to our individual voices and read our letters, and more importantly, to make a decision that they, as informed leaders†of our community, feel benefits all of†us over the†long-term.
