In response to the letter Noba urged me to write to Strathcona Regional District (Hall Tax Petition and Next Steps), I received the following reply:
“The subject of the proposed Manson’s Hall Tax referendum has not yet been brought forward to the Strathcona Regional District Board or Electoral Area Services Committee for discussion. As a result, responding to any correspondence on this subject by either staff or SRD Directors would be inappropriate at this time. Questions regarding matters relating to Cortes Island can be directed towards either Alternate Director Mary Lavelle or Director Noba Anderson.”
I don’t see this as a rejection letter. It doesn’t say that they didn’t receive the letter, just that they can’t talk about it yet. I urge everyone who cared enough to write, for or against, to forward your letter to Noba, who represents all of us, so she will know we care. And if the said subject does come before the Board, then send the letter again, if you feel like it.
