Local politicians ‘keeping it real’

Dear editor,
Citizens in Halton Hills should pinch themselves. Are we lucky, blessed or just the smartest voters?
Take a look at the political landscape closest to us— the municipal level. Over the last year there has been an increasing number of mayors in neighbouring towns, cities and provinces who have fallen out of grace and out of office.
By contrast, our mayor, Rick Bonnette, and the councillors of our town of Halton Hills are ‘keeping it real’— his slogan. And I can buy into it.
We voted for real politicians and got our money’s worth in local initiatives for healthcare, public services and a vibrant, safe community. Instead of headlines about corruption, scandal, secrecy and disappointment we have a measure of transparency, decency, communications and commitment.
Let’s always be vigilant as citizens; and let’s take some credit, this time, for getting the most out our of our political system.
Eric Doubt, Georgetown
