LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Ask before port sells bonds

To the editor:
Do you own property?
Should your elected officials ask you before spending $1.3 million of your tax money?
Do you think we should build a new marina in Langley?
It is going to happen, if you do stand up and say no, or at the very least make them ask us, and explain why they want to spend the money! This will also be a tax burden for the next 30 years!
I just spent an hour going through all the port meeting agendas from early 2010 and as per my memory the first mention of bonds was a presentation in February 2010.
Since then, absolutely nothing. At the Dec. 13, 2011, meeting a mention of update on bond rating process. Then Jan. 10, 2012, something referred to as indicative request, code for bonds? And the agenda for Feb. 14, 2012, the same (under the radar), then the done deal in The Record.
Spread the word! Shouldn’t they have to ask?
