Kohlman wasting town’s time

Open letter to Nick Kohlman:

Stop already!

As a proud resident of Ponoka and a former councillor I am more than tired of your all-consuming campaign of negativity and untrue and unsubstantiated allegations.

You speak of town officials stealing from residents with unfair taxes and charges. If the ratepayers in this town only knew of all the time and resources that have been expended in an attempt to satisfy the never-ending queries put forward by you, a non-resident, they would not only be shocked, they would be calling for some sort of restitution. You have been voicing your claims to every government and law enforcement agency that would listen for many years and have been told over and over that there has been no wrongdoing. The claim that administration has not been co-operative or hasn’t answered your questions is beyond belief. My own experience during my time on council gave me the impression that if you don’t receive the answer you want you reword the request and try again.

One of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Perhaps it would be a good idea to get out from behind your microscope on town affairs and look in the mirror.

I don’t know what motivates your behaviour but it is my opinion that the constant front page reporting of your claims over the last many years has done as much as anything to discourage new business and stifle progress as any other single factor.

It is time for all the many positive things to take their rightful place in the headlines.
