Council to decide on recount Monday

A special meeting of Fort Erie town council is scheduled for Monday to decide whether to hold a recount of the mayoral election which was decided by four votes.

Councillor Ann-Marie Noyes requested the recount.

Mayor Doug Martin, who won the election, is expected to declare a conflict of interest so the meeting will be chaired by Councillor Tim Whitfield.

    Ward four Tim Whitfield didn’t let us down he predicted a “LANDSLIDE” and he got one on his head..Keeping in character he was the only ex councillor that voted against Ann Maries recount. What a guy.

    Whitfield was the chairman of the meeting as deputy mayor, so he did not vote and would only vote in case of a tie.

    I don’t recall Councillor Whitfield making such a statement and knowing him, I would suggest that he is not the type of person to make that statement.

    He is still our councillor, not an ex-councillor, and knowing his fortitude, he will continue to serve our community with responsibility until the end of his term as he has done for the past four years.

    The new councillor elect, John Hill, on the otherhand prides himself and promoted in his announcement of candidacy, the fact that he has delegated at council in opposition to every progressive opportunity that our town has been afforded.

    Get yourself ready for four years of stagnation.

    TOAD,
    You were not in the barbershop when he said it.

    He was never my councillor.

    John Hill was elected by the people Tim lost by a very large margin. The people have spoken.

    Unfortunately Peter, the attribute that requires me to go to a barbarshop left me years ago :(

    Without knowing the whole conversation, and you do, I feel I have to succumb to your knowledge.

    However, if it was simply the barber asking Tim if he was going to win by a landside, and he responded that he hopes so, could hardly be considered to be making a statement.

    Yes, the people have spoken. Let’s hope they are right.

    So, to re-iterate you ….John Hill will never be my councillor
