LETTERS: No ‘me, myself and I’ in team

Re: Hundial splits from Surrey mayor’s coalition, July 24

I find it interesting after reading the article with regard to Jack Hundial’s leaving the coalition and the four remaining councillors’ responses.

I laugh because they all seem to think they are on the winning team. I hate to disillusion them, but they are not. They have little or no impact on any decisions being made, except for putting up their hands in agreement with the mayor. The decisions are made by the mayor ( Mr. me, myself and I ) mostly behind closed doors and they blindly go along.

You call that a team?

Now they are the Transition Committee – only because they are ‘yes’ people. None of them know anything about running a police department.

The safety of Surrey is in major jeopardy

What good are they to the people who voted for them and the citizens of Surrey? They don’t even bother to ask.

The councillors who have chosen to be independent have gained a lot of respect for seeing how it really is and taking a stand. They are not thinking of themselves, they are thinking of the citizens and the city we call home
