I see in this cbc report that Charlottetown City Councillor Mitchell Tweel is to receive his $16,000 councillor "salary" despite not being on any committees (because he was removed from the committees he was on). Apparently, councillors are expected to sit on committees in order to receive their annual stipend.
Therefore, I propose the Mow My Lawn Committee, which Councillor Tweel can be let in charge of. I realise that Mitchell does not represent my district. And I realise that, perhaps of all the councillors, Mitchell is the one who is most adamant about doing good for his district, even if it’s detrimental to other districts. Because of this, i think it is unlikely that he gives a shit about my lawn, but I think he’d go a long way to earning the share of his salary that I paid out to him, if he would come to my house and mow my lawn. Once a year, in August.
So, how about it Mitch? I’ll supply the gasoline and the push-mower, you supply the validation of your councillorship.
