In reference to Suzanne Senger’s letter (“An opportunity to engage”) in the Aug. 15 issue of Coast Reporter and her mission to discredit the George developer, calling the development information in circulation on the George website and that of the town as “PR spin,” I would ask who are the Gibsons Alliance of Business and Community (GABC)?
By their very name they purport to represent many of the businesses and homeowners in Gibsons. Not so true. I personally do not wish to have their representation as a Gibsons Landing small business and homeowner.
I certainly do not espouse their views. The GABC does not have my voice.
I have often found the GABC to be misinformed in regards to many aspects of the George development, and their members’ behaviour in many town council meetings has been horribly disrespectful to both our mayor and town staff. Given that they seemingly have their own “PR spin” going with a very political agenda behind it, one cannot help but wonder what their real motive is.
I know many business owners who are not in agreement with the stance of the GABC (you see us at town council meetings); therefore, I have to wonder what Gibsons businesses Ms. Senger’s organization is representing. They are not named on the GABC website, and as GABC president, Ms. Senger is neither a Gibsons business owner nor resident.
Many Gibsons business and home owners do want to see the George developed, believing solidly that it will bring an infusion of positive economic development to the town. Perhaps, to wit, “one should put one’s money where one’s mouth is.”
