Duhh. I'm sorry for the insult, but do you think I/we don't know that. And do you think there is a difference when the issue of the newsletter come out during an election? I do.

Exactly. Until the election it's business as usual. If there are any changes come election day, the newsletter will simply have some new faces in it over the next few years. I wonder if the mayor and council even have anything to do with the publication, as it's probably a departmental thing.

How smarmy ... try until the election is called, it is business as usual. After that, certain things fall into place around publicity and election financing.

For those interested, here is the brush-off reply from DWK; telling me in essence to file a complaint with Victoria if I don't like what was done. Go figure.

(The text of the letter follows.)

Ahhhhh It seems it was an occasional thought that brought up what was intended to be an election issue instead of a quarterly issue of the business in DWK. Until election results are in........... it and will be business as usual and maybe some subjects in the photos will change when another quarterly issue is mailed out.
