LETTERS: Good deed punished

Editor:

Re: Wheels of bureaucracy spin, too, March 18 letters.

I just read the letter to the editor regarding a Meals on Wheels driver getting a parking ticket.

This was at the height of our snowfall with a foot of snow on the road. This is a disgrace to punish a volunteer who delivers a hot meal to a senior citizen of White Rock.

Perhaps this is the only meal the senior eats all day.

The City of White Rock said no to an appeal of this parking ticket.

I hope it reconsiders.

An open letter to City of White Rock.

My goodness, you really put both feet in the smelly stuff this time – ticketing a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels.

Think on this: a volunteer is worth more to the community because they do good deeds for free.

But you could still save face.

Issue free parking cards to the drivers when they are delivering.

Also, remember you or your family might have need of this service one day. I hope our faces aren’t too red today.

Roger P. Kealy, White Rock
