I found it completely inappropriate that some CVRD area directors and other are councillors took advantage of a photo op to endorse NDP candidate Alistair MacGregor in the Oct. 19 election.
The general public does not get this same opportunity and it seems to me that these folks were elected by their constituents in the Valley to deal with issues and concerns in their respective areas, not take advantage of their position for political posturing.
I did not vote for my area representative to then go on to endorse publicly Mr. MacGregor. It is these kind of optics that leave a bad taste with the general public. I understand their intentions, but it requires some sober second thought.
