Letter: Hold by-election to fill empty council seat

Dear editor:

I read the article about Stuart McCormack resigning from Niagara-on-the-Lake council (The Lake Report, July 3). 

I thought it was great of him to send his resignation letter to your newspaper.

In light of the reasons he cited for his resignation (being unhappy with the direction in which council is moving), I believe council should not be appointing anyone as his replacement.

I would like to know what other people in the community think about how McCormack's successor should be chosen: whether a new person should be selected by council or elected by the residents of NOTL.

I believe the person should be elected.
