February XIXth, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
1. Its a bit rich to think that if Candidate Danisha Bhaloo is elected as the next Ward XII YEG City Councilor that Former Mayor Stephen Mandel won't once again gain direct operational control of the City Council & its administrative functions, thus seizing even more power from the hapless Mayor Don Iveson & his media minions like Mackmale & Kristopher Wells & Ryan Jespersen!
2. The Former Mayor is free to endorse whomever he wants of course, as is his absolutely stunning bride Lynn! But Candidate Bhaloo should take their endorsement with a grain of kosher pickle salt. After all, she will be in the pocket of the Chief Executive of this city who caused all of the LRT overages & expenditures such as the welfare cash being handed over to the billionaire & crappy Edmonton Oilers team owner Daryl Katz, thus forcing endless tax increases which are higher than inflation without any increase in service levels.
3. It should also be pointed out that the Current Mayor Iveson was then Councilor Don Iveson who went along with everything that Steve said and thus placed this absolutely crippling debt on the citizenry of Edmonton, which has contributed greatly to the homelessness problem & who has that "deer in the headlights" look of being absolutely clueless as to how to solve it. Why don't you send out another tweet picture of yourself smiling Donny?
4. If Danisha becomes the Councilor-Elect this Monday when results are announced at 8:35PM MST, I'd like to point out that she will constantly be over having coffee or dinner in Ex-Mayor Mandel's living room getting her orders from Steve on what to do next. So basically, we will have a Ward V resident with total operational control over a sitting City Councilor until October MMXVII when the next regular Civic Election Cycle occurs so he can expand on his plan or "the vision" to add on even more debt. I ask Ward XII residents & south side voters who kicked then cabinet minister Mandel out as MLA after only what VII.V (7.5) months, do they really want him back in charge of anything but changing both his & his grandson's diapers?
