Sick of me, me, me

This past week yours truly has been preparing for the October 27 election.

Which means completing literary work on brochures that we will deliver to Ward 9 doorsteps so you can put them in your recycling boxes.

It also means making certain this blog contains biographical data and updated information about ward issues. There are also lists of what has been achieved in a first term and what will be done if this Ward 9 incumbent is re-elected.

All of which is essential information that a well-informed voter should see.

Trouble is, it becomes a chest-thumping diatribe of me, me, me without giving credit and thanks to countless unpaid volunteers across the ward and city. These are the people who, by donating countless hours, energy and effort to city issues, community groups, committees and neighbourhood assocations, are an absolute inspiration.

Often the efforts of these unpaid volunteers, combined with valuable work done by very capable city staff and those providing invaluable councillor-support services in the mayor’s office, are the people who deserve such attention.

They are the people who help any elected representative look good during council terms and at election time.

So, before returning to the constant use of “I, me and my,” allow me (there’s that word) to give a massive shout-out to all the generous,  hard-working people who so patiently helped this councillor through the past four years.

    We’ll be watching the results in Ward 9 and wishing we could vote for you (again) Frank. I agree with Anna Maste – job well done!
