  1. That is unfortunate as i was looking forward to your ideas

  2. I had wished to read your views on the topics. I expect something really pressing was on last night. I look forward to your ideas for Town Leadership and Progression.

    This speaks volumes for Downer. He has nothing to say because he has nothing to contribute. Please Midland save our town and do NOT put this man back in power.

  4. I failed to see why we would re-elect someone who, when residing over council had nothing to offer and brought nothing to the table. Stay with the “tea cozy” it suits you better!!
    As far as the “working” with the Weber Foundation is concerned. You neither were the project-manager, nor did you negotiate any contracts with the main “Trades” ! Mr. Weber himself did all the cajoling and arm bending required to make the building, which he relinquished to the Town, a much appreciated succes.
