Wyebridge meeting prompts differing views from Breckenridge, Wesselo
By Kate Harries AWARE News Network
A report by Terry Breckenridge of an October 14 all-candidates’ meeting in Wyebdridge has drawn a heated response from Dick Wesselo, who is running for councillor in Tiny Township.
Breckenride is married to former Tiny mayor Peggy Breckenride who, along with current mayor Ray Millar (not seeking re-election), has endorsed a slate of candidates.
Wesselo is part of another slate, backed by the Federation of Tiny Township Shoreline Associations. He was the only member of that slate to show up to the meeting, sponsored by the Tiny Parks and Recreation Associations.
Breckenridge, in a summary of the candidates’ positions on a variety of issues, claimed that Wesselo stated he didn’t want to be part of a council as fractured as the current one.
Breckenridge wrote of Wesselo that, “abandoned by his other FoTTSA nominees, he seemed to wish too late that he couldn’t be part of a Cornell, Hastings, Walma and Wishart council.”
In his strongly worded reply, Wesselo said that what he in fact told the meeting was that “As a voter I do not want a Council that will bring another 4 years of division and divisiveness to the Township.”
Wesselo also took issue with Breckenridge on the matter of in-camera meetings, a complaint to the Ombudsman and the Goessman lots lawsuit.
