Newspaper story used ‘sensationalist wording’

Mr. Adamson exhibits his “transparency and responsibility to taxpayers”

I was very disappointed with the article “Adamson’s travel expenses under scrutiny” (The Hope Standard, Feb. 20).

Sensationalist wording clearly implies that Area B representative Dennis Adamson squanders public funds, then deliberately tries to cover it up. Instead of indulging in a smear campaign, how about doing some responsible reporting that includes his accomplishments, particularly how many dollars he has saved taxpayers.

Mr. Adamson exhibits his “transparency and responsibility to taxpayers” (unlike other politicians) by spending his time amongst his constituents, always having time to speak with them on the sidewalk, at the rec centre, in shops, the park, at public events, meetings or in their homes.
