A not so serious look at the municipal candidates

I’m sure you all watched the all-candidates meeting on Thursday evening, on TV or in person.

Dear sir,

I’m sure you all watched the all-candidates meeting on Thursday evening, on TV or in person.

After this everyone has many thoughts on who is the best person for the job and, as you may have guessed, I have my own thoughts on each candidate.

I will now share them with you, even if some of you don’t want to hear them and won’t agree.

Jack Riddle – stop looking at the desk – there are people out there.

Rob Goffinet – wish you had been my teacher in school. You make easy listening.

Corinne Scott – There’s a smart “stubble jumper”. If you’re not from the Prairies, you have no idea what that means.

Edwin Empinado – your smile could melt the snow.

Phil Germuth – would the real Phil please stand up.

Joe Salema – if you win please don’t stop making the best hot dogs in town.

John Pacheco – Nice smile and short answers.

Mary Murphy – I envy your lovely hair.

Mario Feldhoff – please, the microphone needs to be closer at all times.

Bob Corless – can’t believe you said so much.

Carl Whicher – love your hair.

Joshua Callahan – I think you need to be here a year or two more.

And the candidates for mayor?

Randy Halyk – I’m sure you’ll be the highest bidder at the upcoming animal shelter auction.

Joanne Monaghan – is there anyone in government you don’t know or anything you haven’t done?

Jim Thom – Dad’s shoes are going to be big ones to fill.

Danny Nunes – your ghost mask worked – we couldn’t see you.

These are my comments and observations which are not that important. What is important is that you get out and vote.

My final word, good luck to our community.

Keep smiling, I’m watching and listening,


Roma Burnett.
