I write this letter because the citizens of Sudbury have
been deceived by the mayor and the councillors during the last
election. I am one of the many people who are thoroughly
disgusted at the disgrace they have  allowed this city to
It appears that Sudbury's mayor and council were coached in
the same manner as our men's Olympic hockey team. The "everyone
for themselves, forget the team attitude" has ruined our city,
although it has clearly made us aware of the error we made in
the last election.  I believe the mayor is in way over his
head and Sudbury is drowning because he is pulling us down with
If the city is not paying a consultant from out of town to make decisions, then I assume the mayor is following the direction of the "Three Musketeers": Mark Mieto, Councillor Janet Gasparini and (adviser to the  mayor) Paul Demers. They believe they know what should be done but have proven to be no better at making the right decisions than the mayor and council.
The way I see it if we need a consultant to make the
decisions for Sudbury,  why don't we just hire one as
mayor and save the taxpayers the consultant fees.
Our elected councillors have let us down and the only one
that has any of my respect is Andre Rivest because he had the
backbone to stand up for what he saw as a bad decision.
It's very clear that better supervision of the taxpayers'
dollar is needed and with another municipal election fast
approaching, something has to be done. This cannot continue. As
concerned citizens, we have to clean up this mess, elect a
competent mayor, replace all councillors and get rid of the
"Three Musketeers." We need a mayor who has life and business
experience: someone who cares about Sudbury and its people and
someone who will not take credit for doing something that
should have been done in the first place.
