PoCo Pork

News report:
“Port Coquitlam has voted in favour of giving themselves a hefty raise, with a 27 per cent increase for councillors and a 42 per cent boost for Mayor Greg Moore...Moore's salary would jump to $85,418 from $67,277, while the councillors' pay would increase to $31,654 from $22,257.” (Vancouver Sun: July 26, 2010 8:14 PM)
Mayor Moore admitted to reporters that this decision was a very difficult one for Council to make. We must applaud the courage and determination of PoCo Council for making this heroic decision. Let’s hope the rest of their decisions will be less arduous to make!

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
