Info Energy Meeting On It’s Way!

As posted on Dave Nadalins’ Blog!
Mark Tuesday March the 28th on your calender as Woodstock residents
will finally get insight into the series of events surrounding
Woodstock Hydro Holdings and its subsidary Info-Energy.The meeting will
take place at Woodstock City Council Chambers and while planning for
the meeting is ongoing, the details should be finalized by the time I
appear as a delegation at Council next Thursday, March the 1st. The
hope is that Navigant report author George Bedard will be present along
with Mayor Michael Harding and members of Council, members of Woodstock
Hydro Holdings, former Directors of Info-Energy and all related
individuals to deliver a concise and accurate account of events.It
certainly is a dissapointment that Council did not endear to Jim
Bender’s request for the long sought after meeting but the olive branch
is still extended for them to endourse the meeting and have it
sanctioned by Council as it was committed to by the Mayor.This meeting
is imperative for the City to move on from this issue and restore
confidence to the political process in Woodstock.Credit is given to
Bender, Paul Plant, Bill Downing, Brian Currah, Trvor Birtch and many
others for their constant pursuit of accountability on this issue.
Everyone should plan on attending council next session, and everyone should plan on being there for this one.
Whether or not the players come out to play remains to be seen.
No witch hunts…just a good fact finding mission, and the mission should be that we as ratepayers should never become involved in private enerprise in this manner ever again if there is no accountability, clarity or even accuracy from the people who were supposedly “watching” out for us.
Kudos to Tait, Sobeski and Gerrie for saying they didn’t see anything wrong with a public meeting. Perhaps you won’t make any friends in the administration, but you will at least benefit from the respect of ratepayers.
Stand up for Woodstock and the folks that pay the bills here!

    “This meeting is imperative for the City to move on from this issue and restore confidence to the political process in Woodstock.”

    This statement scares me. It sounds too much like Dave wants to smooth this whole nasty business over so we can get back to business as usual. (maybe with him as Mayor)

    Newsflash! It’s business as usual and confidence in the political process that got us into this mess!

    We should learn from this issue and take a close look at the local “political process.” It’s broken and needs fixing. The process should have never permitted the hydro scandal or the Sally Creek debacle to occur. The Corporation needs a shakeup. Council and the rest of the administration have to become more open and accountable to the public.

    A return to business as usual is not an option.

    david acts like a mayor in wait. The city didn’t vote for him because of the talking out of both sides of the mouth” disease he has.

    Dave may have not been my first choice for mayor either but although I frequently had reason to doubt his judgment I can’t ever recall doubting his integrity. That puts him well ahead of the guy that got the most votes.

    Dave’s fighting the good fight along with the rest of us. Let’s deal with the issues at hand.

    We can gang up on Dave later. 🙂
