Too Busy – Letters to the editor – Penticton Herlad

Too Busy?

There is an old wives tale that hints of getting things done. It points out that if one wants something of importance done; find someone who’s too busy to do and it will get done! I am wondering as to how this might apply locally at our civic political level, especially to Councilor Picton.

Apparently Councilor Picton, who has no time for reading the local paper (he uses the excuse of too much negativity to justify this) feels that his time is more valuable and can be put to better use. With this in mind, are we, the taxpayers to believe that he is out and about engaging with the citizenry and that this aspect is taking up his time? Or is it that he is so involved with things in his personal life that are so important like, gardening (possibly); hobbies (whatever they may be); visiting friends and family or vacationing, but to name a few. Surely these are far more important than fulfilling the mandate that he was given as a result of being elected.

It seems that if and when he is “engaged,” it appears that comments he makes seem to mimic those of “The Donald” to some degree where one shoots from the lip and not the gray matter. Oh, did I say that? Tsk! Tsk! Hush my mouth! Perish the thought!

As I have said previously, Councilor Picton, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the political kitchen!” The political chain is only as strong as its weakest link!
