LETTER: Hepner and whole team get a big, fat fail

The Editor,

Re: "Hepner says ‘Yes’ vote is simply ‘common sense,’" the Now, Feb. 17.

It has been a few months into Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner’s reign and I am not impressed.

It did not take her long to belly up to the taxpayer’s trough. Hepner and her Surrey First team have decided to tax the hell out of us. No mention during the election campaign regarding the 10 per cent increase in property taxes and levies/fees etc.

Hepner might have lost the election if the tax/levy/fee amounts were disclosed.

Now, I see in news reports, she has managed to increase her personal pay by about $50,000 to be on the TransLink board and she is using taxpayers’ money to fund her personal views about yet another public tax for TransLink.

Surrey deserves better. Hepner and her whole team get a fail.

A. Rose,

Surrey
