Note: We have removed the Friday deadline and will accept submissions beyond that date.
Earlier this week, we checked in with all of the councillors and the Mayor, through their assistants to ask if we could expect a submission from them, on our Perspectives Virtual Panel topic, The Best Place to Raise a Child.
So far, we received a submission from Mayor Bratina, Clr. Merulla and Clr. McHattie. We were advised today that Clr. Ferguson will not be making a submission, due to a busy week he is having this week. We have yet to receive a response from the remaining Clrs from Wards 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 ,14, and 15.
We have provided first notice of this question, May 9th 2012, and thus believe we have provided ample time for submissions. As our city vision statement goes to the very identity we are trying to establish, we respectfully submit that it is in bad form not to receive submissions from the missing councilors and that some priority should have been afforded to this. We continue to invite their submissions and will publish them verbatim.
