It’s not easy for Council to balance multiple priorities.

However, as Don suggests, an elected official must first have a strong crystal-clear vision of the future, with a firm grasp on our most cherished community values.

The key is commitment. Sticking to that vision and those values, especially when business interests, self-interest or other factors don’t fit with them.

How’s your Ward Councillor doing in terms of vision and values? What do you see?
