Letters to the Editor

Hoping that Dudley is a one-term mayor | Letter


It is encouraging to read the previous letters to the editor that are expressing outrage over the cutting down of the Garry Oak in front of the post office. I strongly hope that the actions by Mayor Scott Dudley are remembered and that we citizens can make sure that we are only going to be subjected to one term from this arrogant politician.

Shame on the Oakless Harbor City Council for allowing Dudley to shove this act down our throats without having the guts to bring this extremely controversial action to the public attention before the murder.

If this was the “right decision,” why was it made without any public notification or input? Baloney! Dudley and fellow conspirators knew that this would create public outrage and they took the coward’s way out, closed session.

Maybe a lawsuit could result from a falling branch.

Geez, maybe a lawsuit could ensue from a wheel falling off of a Growler. Ridiculous.

We citizens of Oakless Harbor have endured the constant bullying and arrogant actions of Mayor Dudley. He does not care what we think as his actions continue to illustrate. I hope that we will have the opportunity to show him that we do care and he will pay a heavy price for his actions in the next election.

And, let the city council cowards be on notice as well.
