The citizens of Mission should be congratulated for soundly defeating CRMG in the recent election.
The collective wisdom of the voters tells us that the negative and poisonous approach adopted by CRMG since its inception does not sit well, or fit well, with our community.
The newly elected council faces substantial challenges in addressing the mess they have inherited. Their process must start by rebuilding and regaining the trust and respect of both the public, and the maligned staff of the district. This cannot be achieved without substantive organizational changes.
I believe we have elected a group of intelligent and thoughtful, independent candidates. I look forward to them using their substantial skills to start rebuilding a better community, instead of tearing it apart.
I wish them nothing but the best in their endeavors.
