Don’t hold your breath for Anglin’s apology

I believe more than an extra long breath will be needed if people are waiting for an apology from Joe Anglin.

Dear Editor,

Re: Anglin owes citizens apology for trying to derail meeting, Sylvan Lake News, Nov. 22.

I believe more than an extra long breath will be needed if people are waiting for an apology from Joe Anglin.

If Joe Anglin had any purpose in attending the meeting other than to disrupt it, he would have supported to community of Sylvan Lake with meaningful input on the two agenda items the meeting was called for.

I find it very troubling when an MLA acts in an unprincipled and unprofessional way. I find it even more problematic when the member that is supposed to represent me acts in this manner. I am also upset by his unapologetic style. One only has to read the tweets that he has put out on this topic to see how unrepentant he is.

I agree with Mr. McLean, there should be an apology, however judging from Joe Anglin’s character in the past I don’t believe there will be one.

Jim Vetsch,

Rimbey
