Last Wednesday evening we had Windsor Star columnist Anne Jarvis as a guest on Rose City Politics. One of the things discussed during a new bonus segment (Listen here), was the Riverside Baseball Miracle Field decision at City Council this week. Today Anne's column also covers that topic.
"Defending his decision on social media, he dissed not only his colleagues who voted for the project but all politicians. A “politician” would have approved a free sports field for disabled kids and “taken the praise,” he wrote. He called it “the easy route.” Instead, “I voted my conscience,” he wrote."
What do you think? Should Councillor Holt have expressed his concerns but still voted for the project or do you think he was right to stick to his convictions?
