LETTER: Choices limited in a riding that is used to self-serving politicians

South Surrey-White Rock: How unfortunate that some of the parties are so desperate that they have to run has-beens and opportunists.

The Editor,

How unfortunate that some of the political parties are so desperate that they have to run has-beens and opportunists.

Judy Higginbotham was a city councillor with questionable performance.  Remember her “re-elect” scandal on her campaign signs?

Dianne’s Watt’s legacy is row housing, mega houses, high crime, high property taxes and “Watts Mahal,” the unnecessary and extremely expensive city hall monument with a massive lawsuit facing taxpayers.

Both Higginbotham and Watts are out for a second pension and have nothing or little to offer.

In South Surrey-White Rock, our choices are so limited since only self-serving individuals are running for political office. Look at Russ Heibert, the outgoing MP who ran up $650,000 expenses in a year, including $250,000 for first-class airline ticket for his wife and children. How come his expenses were not investigated?

Unfortunately, people vote based on name recognition because either they have short memories or are too lazy to investigate and vote based on ability, integrity and honesty.
