No 'old boys club' council

I was very disheartened to see the blatant disregard for common sense (Sept. 24) when I attended the SENS event at the Performing Arts Centre (in Vernon).

Current (Vernon) Mayor Victor Cumming spent the entire evening promoting Brian Guy, who is running for a seat on Vernon council this term.

The two of them clearly had a plan to pump each other up and promote each other, all the while avoiding the actual question they were asked.

Cumming, over the last four years, has often shown a lack of support for his incumbent councillors. He has yet to endorse any of them this time around.

Why is that?

It seems he is always trying to unseat councillors and bring in different people, his friends, for the job. He tried to talk former councillor) Dalvir Nahal into stepping down early in her term, he actively campaigned for a former councillor in the by-election after Nahal sadly passed away and now here we go again with Brian Guy.

Why doesn't he like and support anyone on the current council except (Coun.) Kelly Fehr?

I don't know about the rest of Vernon but I am not interested in stepping back in time and having an “old boys club" running Vernon.
