The problem at City Hall isn’t just the need for fresh blood, it’s an ongoing saga of deadwood in the bureaucracy..
As a former civic employee, now retired, I watched over a twenty year period as the same tired sycophants progressed up the management ladder..and if you were an anti-union worker abusing type, so much the better, especially under such regimes as Sam Sullivan’s..
There has been labour peace since Robertson got elected, yes, but the same miserable rightwing bureaucrats are still there, I see some of them as spokespersons during media chats, and it is disheartening to know that they will do everything in their power to keep the old status quo going..
Not only are key positions going begging, some internal house cleaning is needed…otherwise Vancouver will continue to be in stale orbit with no progressive ideas on the biggest issue in Vancouver – affordable housing, of both kinds, rental and ownership – being made in the foreseeable future..
That publicity-seeking hack, Gordon Price, has set himself up to be some sort of spokesperson for the universe, but the truth is he was part of the crew that kept the corporate tools going when he was in office, as an NPA member..thankfully, they have not regained power, but they are always lurking there in the shallow end of the political swamp, waiting to resume their regime of 1%er support..do something, Gregor, while you still have a mandate. To paraphrase flamboyant editorials of the past, Gregor, have to say that you might want to take a look around the Hall and see just who deserves to be given a one-way ticket to Palookaville, for their numbers are legion….
