Re: View Royal needs to watch taxpayer money, Letters, Jan. 27, 2012.
Once again Jim Powell writes a highly inflammatory and wildly inaccurate letter in regards to spending in View Royal.
Given that Mr. Powell is a director of the View Royal Community Association (a position he attained by acclamation) it would perhaps behoove him to work in a constructive and collaborative manner with the Town.
Instead, secure behind his keyboard, he continues a vitriolic campaign that discredits the Town, its staff, and its volunteers.
This campaign began in 2002 when Mr. Powell vehemently opposed the Helmcken Road improvements.
Perhaps the writer should attend the odd council or committee meeting. This might at least arm him with some facts upon which to base his assumptions.
All in all, the letter and the ongoing campaign speaks volumes more about Mr. Powell than it does about View Royal.
