the burg watch’s questions ignored by members of council

In a January 7, 2016 email to all members of council, I advised that at the end of each year of the previous council’s term, i emailed everyone regarding their performance.

I requested a response to the questions below and let them know that I set a deadline of January 15 since some had either indicated questions from the burg watch would not be answered and/or were not answered in the past.

During the 2014 election campaign, the then-candidates answered 40 questions from readers of the burg watch as follows:
Aldo DiCarlo all
Bart DiPasquale 8
Joan Courtney 5
Rick Fryer 0
Jason Lavigne 8 and following a threat of legal action, advised me that he will not be responding to anymore questions on my site
Leo Meloche 1
Diane Pouget 21

Year End Questions 2015 for the end of Year one:

  1. Have you fulfilled your campaign promises?
  2. Have you always responded to ratepayers’ emails? If not, why not?
  3. Are you satisfied with how requests for information are handled; both informal requests and Freedom of Information requests?
  4. When will you commit to ensuring the town’s website and council chambers are accessible?
  5. Is there one accomplishment you are particularly proud of?
  6. Is there anything you wish you had dealt with differently?
  7. What are your top three goals for 2016?

I can answer question 2; no and i have no idea why my emails are not always responded to and similarly, I have no idea why these questions are not answered when campaign promises focused on transparency and accountability.
