I’m wondering why you spend the balance each year instead of giving a break to the taxpayers the following year ~ with everything so costly now, it is time to give a break to us. No more raises should be given as the people are being asked to take less!!
Mary, thank you for your comment on our website. Please note, our Richmond First incumbent City Councillors stood up against the spending of the budget surplus last year – but were outvoted by the majority on Council. If you would like to read more about this situation, please read an article from the Richmond Review at http://www.richmond-news.com/sports/City+squirrel+away+surplus/4912064/story.html .
On behalf of Councillors Derek Dang, Ken Johnston, Bill McNulty and Candidate Linda McPhail, we ask for your support to continue standing up on your behalf.
