Free forum needed to hear mayoral candidates

Re: politics and all-candidates meetings.

First, thank you to the Chamber of Commerce for hosting the two meetings and providing voting members the opportunity to hear the candidates.

It is surprising to me that not all voting members have the opportunity to attend a free forum to hear the mayoral candidates.

I believe that the candidates would want to ensure that every vote matters, not just those who can afford to attend a lunch and take time away from work.

The City of Williams Lake manages and runs the Gibraltar Room and it seems to me this facility is the one that should be utilized for both all-candidates meetings.

Come on politicians — step up and ensure every person has an equal opportunity to participate in these meetings.

Interesting fact: Visit the City’s site at www.williamslake.ca/index.asp?p=1990 and click on each name.

This will bring up each candidate’s “disclosure of information.”
