Inaugural speech of Mayor Janice Perrino

Summerland, BC - Mayor Janice Perrino

Excerpts from Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino’s Dec 1 inaugural speech; similar words to Chilliwack Mayor, Sharon Gaetz’s inaugural speech from 2008. Coincidence?

Janice Perrino: It has been my pleasure to sit in the Mayor’s chair for the last three years and it is with great pleasure and humility that I preside as Mayor of Summerland and the leader of this team for another term.

Sharon Gaetz: It has been my pleasure to sit on Chilliwack City Council for the past twelve years as a Councillor and tonight it is with great pleasure and humility that I preside as Mayor of this City and leader of this team.

Ok, so back to the prison…

What does this all mean, Mayor Perrino? Were you really being “sincere” with your promise of a vote concerning the proposed correctional facility? Hmmm?
