Enclosure a misuse of public funds

The printing ad distributing for this advertisement is a blatant misuse of public funds.

Dear Editor:

Today I opened our monthly water/electric bill to find a legal-sized page enclosure listing what our key accomplishments are for 2013 to 2014.

The printing ad distributing for this advertisement is a blatant misuse of public funds for the mayor and council’s campaign advertising for the upcoming election.

The mayor and council should be required by the taxpaying citizens of Summerland to reimburse the municipality for the cost of printing and distributing this snapshot mailed out with the water/electric bill.

The misuse of public funds is outrageous.

Will the District of Summerland fund a similar snapshot of all the current mayor and council have failed to do and the blatantly self-serving and short-sighted decisions they have undertaken on our behalf?

Gerri Davis
