Letters: Phantom voters proved real enough

Dear Editor,

During the Township election campaign, Rick Green took much pleasure poking his opponent with out-of-context quotes.

Mayor Jack Froese said he not only listened to those who attended the public hearings, he had a responsibility to take into consideration the larger numbers of citizens who didn’t attend.  

One of Green’s favourite twisted punch-line jabs was insinuating that Froese listened to phantom-like people who weren’t there.

Well, it looks like a lot of those silent majority make-believe people showed up at the polls and voted to re-elect Mayor Jack Froese.

It also appears the “Unelection Campaign” did precisely that for Mr. Green, who first denied being directly involved with them.

Mark Twain said, “Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.”
