Doug Craig is jumping up and down with glee. Thanks to the Mayor of Waterloo and her Council, the Mayor of Cambridge has figured out a new source of revenue to help pay for some of his unfulfilled dreams. Mayor Craig is going to charge landlords for a rental licence. Remember, you heard it here first!
Mr. Craig has been “concerned” for some time about the safety of rental accommodations in Lamebridge. But, until now he hasn’t known what to do about it. Thanks to Mayor Halloran of Waterloo, he now has an answer. He is going to make rich landlords pay.
Doug has one problem. He knows that Hespelerites will be knocking on his door asking for some of the money raised by the new licence fees. Money he shorted them for the “Hespeler Improvement Project” over the past years. There is no damn way Doug is going to let the people of Hespeler get their mitts on his new stash of cash. He also knows that there are irresponsible people out there who will think Cambridge Council should be investing in new water pipes – which in Cambridge are leaking at an alarming rate. But Mr. Craig has other plans for his new found cash. He knows he needs something to really WOW the citizens of Lamebridge so that he can get re-elected in 4 years.
What will the Mayor’s new project be? You will find out all to soon. It will be something to make the people of Cambridge proud. Just wait and see.
