We need vision

Congratulation to Mr. Richard Pacanowski, for having the courage to write about his neighbourhood.

Congratulation to Mr. Richard Pacanowski, for having the courage to write about his neighbourhood, we need more like that, indeed it is more than the current politicians in the City of Parksville and RDN have done.

Once again it shows that we homeowners that care for our front yards are held hostage by the homeowners that just do not care at all.

Also it shows the complete inability, total lack  of leadership, lack of courage that politicians currently have, please politicians walk the streets, walk the roads, knock on our doors get to know us  the taxpayers, not just during elections, not just at your coffee shop of choice but at our houses, in our neighbourhood, tell us your vision, your platform to help us in keeping our area in a proper manner, to help the one’s that fail.

Once again we are held hostage by you politicians. I get that some are elected by acclamation and don’t need to provide any solutions, or vision, or platform on how, when, why, you see your area move forward.

Remember Robert F. Kennedy said “Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not.”

Have the courage to step outside the comfort zone of your office.
