Ucluelet resignation

An avid blog reader asked me to post this article from the Westerly.The Westerly has been doing a great job covering local politics as of late. I'm glad to see more reader participation on the blog.For a while comments were slow as the District of Tofino threatened to track down the IP addresses of commentors.There were over seven thousand individual page views during the Tsunami Advisory.Over a thousand different readers viewed the post on the Mayor's responsibilities. I posted the article because there was a lot of misinformation circulating as to what is expected of the Mayor.There are no residency requirements for anyone on Council except that they reside in BC.There is no requirement that anyone on Council be employed or be retired in their constituency. Readers will remember that in the last election there was a candidate from outside the District....this is perfectly legal and quite common in rural areas.......
