Letters: Mayor’s decision is right

Bike park belongs at SEAPARC says former Sooke councillor

Two thumbs up for the mayor:

I am in total support of Mayor Milne’s proposal, as stated in the Sooke News Mirror dated Wednesday, July 24th, 2013.

His choice to not divide the community any further, but to work together in the best interests of the residents of Sooke in regards to the Bike Skills Park at John Phillips Memorial Park.

My dad (Bob Clark) was a politician (two terms as CRD Director) and my inspiration.  The best advice he ever gave me while I was on Council, was that when the community was divided and/or you were not 100% sure in which direction you should go, you need to vote against the proposal.  You always have the opportunity to bring back the proposal at a later date, but once you vote in favour, you have lost it forever.
