We are posting the following message from Tony Barr, who remains on the ballot:
Their lack of transparency, fiscal management, the arrogance (to ignore the large number of constituents), the apparent influence of a few people, specialty groups, and the many unelected committees.
I feel these are the hot issues for the majority of constituents in Mississippi Mills.
The roles and duties of the upcoming council will require a lot of time and energy to restore the trust and transparency back to the constituents of Ramsay Township and the rest of Mississippi Mills.
I feel my present situation will not allow me to apply myself 100% and fulfill the time required.
Therefore I officially withdrew my candidacy for Ramsay ward councilor on Wednesday September 12th.
I believe Cynthia Guerard and Bev Holmes have a very similar direction as myself and are quite capable of making the proper decisions on behalf of all of Mississippi Mills residence.
I will support Bev and Cynthia as Ramsay ward Councilors going forward.
A question for all residence of Almonte, Ramsay and Pakenham – Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?
Please vote accordingly.
