Letter: At Kamloops City Hall, the buck stops at the top

Note to all: city politics is not a child’s sandbox. Show you can get things done as adults

Editor:

The in-fighting among city council is embarrassing — and the buck stops at the top. 

To have all eight councilors come together to agree that the mayor is not doing his job in a respectful smart way is astonishing. 

When has this ever happened? Eight people are not all wrong. I think thousands of residents still can’t believe Reid Hamer-Jackson came up through the middle and was elected.

If he continues to be deemed unfit by councillors and cannot mediate issues or lead a council of experienced, reasonable people, then his time is up. We did not elect a rogue mayor. The position demands dignity, fairness and working together.

Note to all: city politics is not a child’s sandbox. Show you can get things done as adults.
