Congratulations to all candidates

"Our new mayor and at least two new councilors are well aware of the task ahead, thank you in advance for the hours you will put in."

Congratulations to the newly elected mayor and councilors and the best of luck to you all.

Our new mayor and at least two new councilors are well aware of the task ahead, thank you in advance for the hours you will put in.

To the candidates that ran and were not elected thank you for your efforts, everything happens for a reason.

As a three-time loser at the polls myself I do understand the disappointment at not winning but also found that people would still talk to me.

To my fellow citizens that have concerns over the Waneta airport purchase and the need for a second regional airport;

a) our partners in the regional district were not interested in spending any money to make the airport viable

b) Pacific Coastal provides a level of reliability that we need, for us and our neighbours in Nelson, Castlegar and the Valley. All of us at some point need to spend some quality time at Vancouver General Hospital and having an airline here that will at least attempt to provide a service is important.

c) Along with the airport comes a sizeable piece of land that is desperately needed if this council is going to make economic development a priority.

To everyone that has complimented me on my previous letter to the editor thank you very much, it seems to have touched a nerve.

The letter was an edited version of the original as the Trail Times likes to keep them around 500 words but the point got across.
