Open letter to Councillor Sheena Hughes,

This morning I read the article in the St. Albert Gazette pertaining to your motion to place the Musée Heritage museum expansion into the "unfunded" category.

If this article was correctly reported (Editor’s note: It was) I want to commend you for being fiscally responsible to the already overburdened taxpayer and not agreeing to support and spend $3 million on something that the majority of St. Albert residents don't even know exists. Keep up the responsible decision-making. It's my hope that the three members of council who voted against your motion will start to properly consider the values of the "average" family and taxpayer in their future votes.

The "average" family, like mine, is more concerned about the twinning of an already over-capacity two-lane Ray Gibbon Drive, further recreational expansion opportunities in northwest St. Albert and to our existing overburdened facilities at Fountain Park and Servus Place, along with a further expansion of commercial/industrial land in St Albert, allowing relief for the "average" residential taxpayers while at the same time, providing additional tax revenue from businesses, growth in jobs and retail opportunities for our citizens.

B. Eliuk, St. Albert
