Letters: Contracts are not transparent

Sooke Councillor responds to previous letter about need to know

“Something to hide?” Aug. 22, 2012 Sooke News Mirror.

Dick Momsen is absolutely correct that big government protects all those at the trough. That is why it is very important for municipalities to do regular evaluations of all senior staff and to have contracts that expire for renegotiation purposes. This was all talked about with the previous mayor but she would not listen to logic or common practice. We are all paying a price for her indiscretions and believe me ”there is more.”

As for transparancy on contract issues, they are out of our hands and I am sorry for that.
