CVRD directors pigs at the public trough
Read Mr. Dumont’s comment on the issue that CVRD directors are well compensated for their time. It’s quite obvious that Bill Dumont is quite concerned about CVRD directors’ salaries that are out of control.
When the need is greed the pigs at the public trough surface time and time again. Then the article by Mr. Lowther and his comment that maybe the Gazette should reconsider printing some articles that don’t agree with Mr. Lowther. Mr. Dumont was letting taxpayers (pensioners) know that they are being ripped off by the CVRD.
Mr. Lowther, I believe it’s the newspaper’s position to inform the general public as to what is happening, especially with their bank accounts.
It seems Mr. Lowther would prefer that this rip off be kept under wraps. Mr. Lowther, seniors have no way of recovering these costs. It’s their savings. Does that bother you?
For those of us that worked in the private sector, we got raises of two to three per cent every two to three years. And we worked eight hours a day, wind, rain, snow etc. to make sure that the general public had power and phone service. I don’t believe the CVRD should have the right to pay themselves what they think they are worth. This could be a second/third income for some families.
We taxpayers are very fortunate to have people like Mr. Dumont that is concerned and points out the CVRD costs to taxpayers. Yes, they are pigs at the public trough.
Your comment “Some of us actually know what we are talking about. ” Does that include you?
