Authored by George Harvie, it was unanimously approved and passed without discussion -- until now when residents are upset.

Sylvia Bishop’s team gets $88,949, Jim Cessford’s team gets $83,177 and Harvie’s team gets $124,153. That combines the payouts incumbents would receive should they not be re-elected on Oct. 20.

Jackson's excuse: "If we had a chance to contribute to a plan we would have." You did. All three teams are claiming fiscal responsibility yet they weren't smart enough to invest in their own retirement plans?

The real smart ones are the independents who are running their own finances and not asking for handouts.

My life, my mortgage, my employees and my cats rely on my fiscal responsibility and not on random, self-inflicted payouts from Delta taxpayers.
