How can Port Moody Trustee Keith Watkins state he actually puts in as much time or works to the same capacity as a city councillor?

Both Trustee Watkins and Port Coquitlam Trustee Michael Thomas should provide any type of information that puts them in the same category as city councillors.

Perhaps they can explain why they deserve a higher pay than trustees in larger districts. During the election campaign last fall, neither one of these gentlemen shared their true feelings on trustee wages.

Finally, this district has at least one new trustee willing to take on the pay issue that several of the other trustees stated they would take on last term.

Dave Ginter, President, CUPE Local 561
