It looks like there might be trouble brewing for Grimsby Regional Councillor Tony Quirk after some publicly funded flyers appear to be an attempt to campaign on the public dime. Even the CAO of the NPCA, a Board Councillor Quirk sits on, is seeking answers on this one.
According to the St. Catharine’s Standard:
“Recently released regional expense data showed Quirk has spent more than $2,460 of public funds on flyers, flyer deliveries, newspaper ads and other information and promotional materials in the first quarter of 2018. No other regional councillor has similar claims listed in their expenses.”

What do you think… appropriate or a blatant mis-use of your tax dollars for electoral purposes?
