The intent of my editorial cartoon blog is to bring awareness i.e. getting citizens more engaged in local city politics. Of course not everyone will agree with my POV in just how convoluting, disconnected and polarized our city politics has sorely succumbed under our mayor’s “4 to 3” Team Slate and by our other remaining city Councillor’s horse trading practices. City Hall is no longer “the voice of the people, rather the compliant bought and paid voice of our mayor’s donor pals.”
Our city has now surpassed 2041 Regional Growth Strategy Targets, leaving us choking in traffic/transit congestion and shrinking street parking. The welfare of CNV is under siege by “vulture developers and undermined by poor city planning.” Making it impossible for many seniors, artists, low and fixed income earners and Millennial families to afford our gentrifying housing agenda. A city “short changing” our local businesses who can’t find/keep quantitative part-time workers because of our high cost of rental housing. But we do have $25 million Black Chain bike lanes connecting our four Green Necklace Parks used by less than 2% willing to cycle daily to work!
