By Walter Neufeld. A major signal warning of bad governance …
Your taxes go up in proportionate lockstep with Abbotsford’s mayor and council’s apparent inability to understand finance and their inability to distinguish between good & bad decisions.
According to Provincial statistics, Abbotsford has some of the highest taxes in the Lower Mainland,
Langley, New Westminster,
Delta, Surrey, Coquitlam,
Vancouver, North Vancouver,
West Vancouver, Richmond, etc.
That means the mayor & most of Council have made some exceptionally bad decisions.
They say they’ve gotten better but the facts say otherwise. Mayor Banman suggests a vote for him will move Abbotsford forward but it’s his velocity and speed backwards that leave him with that false impression.
Now they want you to re-elect them so they can do more of the same
You can Stop Them by voting for someone else
