And treat those two impostors just the same;
I have received so many phone calls, voice mails, and e-mails all thanking me for my 16 years of service and expressing disappointment in my electoral defeat. Your support has been heartwarming. I want everyone to know that I have very much enjoyed being your mayor and serving our beautiful town.
My career in politics began with me, a shy, almost deaf guy, leading the successful Hampstead demerger battle with my wife Doris, and son Craig, by my side. It has ended with a much more out spoken guy who hears and, more importantly, listens, thanks to bilateral cochlear implants. We can all see that Hampstead is vastly improved since I was first elected as mayor.
I have never considered myself to be a politician but rather, a public servant. I have never worried about being elected or re-elected. That is the problem with too many politicians. I have taken great pleasure in serving Hampstead for so many years and also in being true to my principles. I have spoken out very strongly against Bill 21 and ignored calls from self-serving, pandering, politicians for me to apologize. I have fought successfully to bring cochlear implant surgery to Montreal. I led the boycott of the Agglomeration Council in 2006. There have been so many successes and I am very proud of my record.
