Wolfville’s leaders are transparent! Yes, they are. Really.
The open letter we got in the mail from the chair of the Fiscal Sustainability Task Force is only the latest example of intent which is apparent to everyone. The town worthies (after outlining again the dire situation we find ourselves in, which we saw coming and warned them about for some years to no avail) now say they want residents to “advise Council on the challenges” the town is facing. They would “like our thoughts on the findings”, and our ideas, the flyer says. So, we are invited to a public meeting, get this, at 6:30 pm on Tuesday Dec. 14th!!!
They chose a weekday, early evening, in one of the busiest weeks in the year for everyone and everyone’s dogsbody. This for a meeting to give input on a report which has been out for months!!!!
OR you can spend your valuable time instead putting together a written submission, because if you are too busy to come to the meeting you will have time to do that won’t you? Now if their thinking behind this isn’t absolutely clear what is?
This is just as transparent as the strategy of having the only meetings where townspeople can ask questions on Monday afternoons at 1:30 pm.
Yes, they are as clear as crystal. We can see right through them.
