Accountability needed

Councillor attempts to rationalize 5.1 per cent property tax increase as the product of poor decision making by past Oak Bay councils

In her letter to the Oak Bay News on May 20, Coun. Tara Ney attempts to rationalize our 5.1 per cent property tax increase as the product of poor decision making by past Oak Bay councils.

I would remind her that several of our current councillors (Ney, Kirby, Braithwaite, Murdoch) have served on previous councils in Oak Bay and moreover that our mayor, Nils Jensen, was a councillor in Oak Bay for no less than 15 years before being elected mayor in 2011. Where is the accountability? According to Ms. Ney, her predecessors have much to answer for.
