Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

The people (tax paying citizens) pay government workers to work for them. When the people ask for something, they should not have to settle for less. (The tail wagging the dog.)

The people have asked for years for sidewalks, bike lanes and on-street parking. I can’t recall anyone asking for turn lanes, even though they are nice on really busy streets. The ones requesting the turn lanes are not residents of our community or living on the streets that unwanted turn lanes are being forced on.

Level streets without potholes are much preferred. Subdivisions should never be given a variance for not having sidewalks, on-street parking, streetlights or a park.

Government is to serve the people and anyone in government that does not want to be a servant needs to get out.

Ruth Griffin, Victoria
