Let’s be clear here. There hasn’t been a proper Union Bay Improvement District Board meeting since June 2016. It has been a shitshow, gong show, and a joke with elected officials bumbling through meetings without any thought to how meetings were held prior to their election. Look at any of the meetings chaired by Carol Molstad – those were proper meetings and are a far cry from the crap we have had to endure since the KIPidiots were elected. With the resignation of those 3 trustees things have gone to hell and there is no way to fix it. How many more years do you want this dysfunction and division to continue? Let’s vote to become a service area. UBID only controls 3 of the scores of services required in Union Bay already provided by the CVRD. The CVRD has the staff and experts we need NOW!
The writing was on the wall when the 3 trustees resigned in 2016 (due to trustees loxam and jacques sneaking around with KIP) and then we lost our professional Administrator. There is a reason why you don’t hear of Improvement Districts popping up anywhere – it is not an effective form of government in this day when communities face upgrading their water systems and infrastructure costs where experts are required in order to make informed decisions.
The Improvement District worked when the challenges were on a much smaller scale. In Union Bay we are facing enormous infrastructure costs in the future as well as sewage costs and to think that a few landowners with zero experience can suddenly understand and make informed decisions is ridiculous. We have witnessed trustees who since elected have shown they are incompetent spouting off absolute bullshit and claiming they have researched when it is obvious to those of us who actually research, they are full of shit.
Paul Healey who was elected in April 2019 resigned Sept. 20, 2019.
