Summer Village of Crystal springs election on now, please vote: reader

Pigeon Lake summer villages’ election campaigns are in full swing, election day is Aug. 19

Dear editor,

The guest column in your July 12 edition concerning Crystal Springs’ “Community in Conflict” helped to clarify some of the village issues for me.

Nomination day was held July 22 and there are four candidates running for three vacancies, so there will be an election. I hope the candidates will visit the cottages and provide the electors with their plans and objectives for the upcoming four-year term. That will also give the residents the opportunity to ask the candidates the tough questions that are of concern to them.

I have been a summer resident at Crystal Springs for 64 years and mayor for four years in the 1980s. I recall how important it was to have a strong council committed to governing and moving the village forward in a positive manner.

I encourage all eligible voters to exercise their right to vote at the advance poll Saturday Aug. 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or vote on election day Saturday, Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Village Inn’s Event Centre Room at the southwest corner of the Village at Pigeon Lake.
