Bigger council needed to counter our despot

More votes at the Qualicum Beach council table are needed

This letter is regarding Neil Horner’s article (The News, June 24).  

Oh dear ... so there’s going to be a stipend hike for the mayor whilst reducing that of the deputy mayor position. 

Being new in the area I have already read and heard enough to have formed an opinion that the mayor of this lovely town is a bit of a despot.  

I agree with Peter Doukakis that there should be additional councillors in Qualicum Beach, if only to ensure that there is a chance for fair, balanced and democratic discussion and decision-making within council.
