Which town would this be? It seems to me 8 people with more-or-less the same agenda run the CoV.
It is our town. I like to think our council, or probably any council for that matter is a little like the view to the south. Up close Port Angeles and Sequim look miles apart, from here they seem a fair distance apart and from Vancouver they would seem like they are side by side. Depending on your location on the political spectrum, they will seem in step or at each others throats.
