Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Letters Candidate Harold Winkworth's Bio

September 8, 2018

The fifteen bios published in your news feed are well done except for one. Candidate Harold Winkworth's bio is more of a disinformation document.

His first statement that the financial condition of the district of Port Stanley is poor. The Village's financial condition is just fine, and the people who make large financial decisions have been in government for years. There is a solid finance plan in place for the future. Our mayor is an accountant!

He also states that the council members are unprepared to do their duties and to suggest this is mean spirited and uncalled for. He attacks his fellow councilors serving with him on the current council. This is not good for the council's morale and performance in their day to day jobs.

The statement that a "good old boys" club still exists is a statement that is sexist and not true. Our deputy mayor is a woman and there are two female members of the council.

He further states that backroom politics need to go away. What does this mean? Should all councilors quit talking to each other and delay solving problems? This sounds silly, petty and a complaint of an uninformed councilman.

On Leadership, Winkworth states he was a Ford auto assembler who moved into a management position including Plant Management. No one I've talked to from the Ford plant remembers him as a manager. We need clarification of this statement to be addressed on his website.

His statement that "corruption" exists, if true, should be reported immediately to the powers that deal with corruption!

Mr. Winkworth has shown to me and others that his attitude toward the Council is not helpful to team building and is divisive. His statements and opinions are not professional and lack "common sense". The Voters will decide.
