Forget what the newspapers say. Forget what anyone says. Here’s the only thing that matters.
What Hazel McCallion says! …And I’m willing to believe her!
MAYOR MCCALLION’S TAKE-HOME BOTTOMLINE MESSAGE ON PUBLIC QUESTION PERIOD
Regarding changes to Public Question Period…
TRANSCRIPT from Rogers Cable 10 TV, Mississauga Council Meeting August 5, 2009:
“We’ve dealt with this as a Mayor all these years–I look at it as an improvement in the administration of the business of the City. It really is.
I think today we need to look at efficiency and improvement of the administration of the business. This is one item that I think is going to do that. You know what? In my opinion citizens that are really sincere and dedicated, are going to benefit from this system in a major way. They’re going to see it’s dealing with their questions more professionally in more depth and with more facts and data to answer the question. And I believe we have to do that, and this is the way, in my opinion, it can be done much better than it has in the past.”
