Support overstated

If many were happy with Oak Bay mayor, another 2,000 were not and voted for his opponent.

Your article in the Nov. 19 News showed a lot of self aggrandizement on the part of the mayor by thinking he has done a good job.

I campaigned for a council member and I guess his honour did not visit the homes I did. Many people said they had voted for him three years ago but would not this time. One person was even baffled about the mayor’s concern over deer feces and still another had been told  that his opponent only had three years experience and being a full-time mayor would cost Oak Bay money, which of course is not true.

If so many were allegedly happy with him, another 2,000 were not and voted for his opponent. Although I was campaigning for my candidate it seemed most of the talk centred about the mayor. And now he wants to be the chair of the CRD. The man who would be king perchance?
