Our Oct 20 elected city officials need to be 100% “Transparent” and “Accountable” in order to gain back “Public Trust” i.e. INTEGRITY forsaken by Mussatto’s Team Slate and his Horsetrader Councillors!


Earlier this month there was an interesting Vancouver Sun online article by Kennedy Stewart: “Time to get big money out of Vancouver City Hall for good.”  He is also running as an independent in their 2018 mayoral race.  Stewart’s mayoral platform revolves around 4 measures in how to improve local city democracy while strengthening and enhancing public trust in their city-council decisions regarding development.  https://vancouversun.com/opinion/op-ed/kennedy-stewart-time-to-get-big-money-out-of-vancouver-city-hall-for-good?video_autoplay=true

His four measures: 1. Time for cooling-off rules, 2. Tighten conflict of interest, 3. Implement lobbyist registry, 4. Daylight campaign financing – which from my POV should be mandatory in our upcoming city elections – wouldn’t you agree wannabe mayor Linda Buchanan.

Measures asserting transparent democracy back into our local politics…  Which of course will never see the light of day, in any of our remaining four: good riddance 2014 convoluting city council meetings.

Perhaps & wishful thinking on my part, there is a “Team Slate free, independent, no strings attached mayoral candidate” willing to step forward, vested in open door policies & morally encompassed governance.  A breath of fresh air currently being smoke screened by our 2018 team slate coalitions and precarious team-like associations.
