Letters: Figures and statements totally inaccurate

Statements made by former Sooke mayor are inaccurate

After certain statements were made by Mrs. Janet Evans to an interviewer regarding the legal costs incurred by four named dissenters of hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, I wrote to the District of Sooke asking for proof of this said statement from Oct. 12, 2011.

The District of Sooke answered on Nov. 9, as follows by this excerpt:

“I confirm you have received records which meet your request in the agenda package at the October 24, 2011 Regular Council meeting, which were the breakdown of legal costs for 2009, 2010 and 2011. As to records you requested identifying yourself in legal opinions and records as to the legal services contract. I regret to inform you that the District of Sooke is unable to provide access to those records because:

a. the records do not exist;”

I am positive that the other three so-called dissenters would have received the same information, if they requested it.

Mrs. Evans never commented again on these misstatements privately or in public.
