Re: Political watcher has different opinion (Letters, Sept. 17)
The negativity of frequent letter-writer, Keith Sketchley of Saanich, is really tiresome.
His reference to the retiring mayor of View Royal was just another example of his harsh criticism of persons and things political that he deems offensive to his sensibilities.
Sadly, Sketchley’s suggested solutions to correct said offences are frequently simplistic or unrealistic.
I would concur on one issue he mentions, asking View Royal voters “to think about what is most important when they choose a new mayor this fall.” I would even expand upon his request by going so far as to suggest that all voters of all municipalities think before they cast their votes this fall – and more importantly ensure they actually make time to get out and vote.
Perhaps Mr. Sketchley, who already seems to have all the answers, may wish to toss his name in the political hat and run for office also?
