Re: “Thinking in sets of threes,” September 28
I have a problem with this so-called council column for three reasons:
One — It is Councillor Donna Macdonald’s barely disguised (why bother!) go at wanting to be re-elected.
Two — By doing that here she uses the council column platform for personal gain.
Three — the Nelson Star gave her this particular space to do so.
Councillor Macdonald’s misuse of the column is not surprising — she never seems to miss an opportunity to promote herself.
And the Star needs to come up with parameters for accommodating all those who will run to be elected/re-elected — announced or unannounced. Particularly those not holding public office now — thus not having this guaranteed access to council/culture and what-not columns.
