Too many do-gooders are just not legislators. For many would-be councillors and even MHA's, it's nothing more than a popularity contest. Bingo!, they get elected and then the feet of clay fall off....and there's a financial price for the taxpayers.

The current council, under the direction of the current mayor, have caused more bad publicity for the town than it has endured in all of the years (combined) since it has been incorporated. We are now learning that the bad publicity is accompanied by price tag. In this case (this news item) the taxpayers of PCSP have paid money to an individual that it should not have. As a result of a recent court ruling the taxpayers of PCSP will have to pay for decisions that the current council should not have taken. On a list of highest taxed on the Avalon Peninsula, taxpayers of PCSP are already almost at the top. The unprofessional and idiotic blunders of the current council makes it a no brainer to bet against moving to the top. Hopefully the new council (after the September election) will begin to repair some of the damage to the towns reputation. However, that hope is contingent on the council being "new".
