Sean, I fail to see what the basis for your aversion to responding to ward specific issues... The best way to find out what your opponent's strategy or arguments are is to argue with them. As a councilor it is not only your duty to represent your ward but to help foster this City along with your ward into the type of city people would want to live in.

It's time to step back and take a look at a bigger picture here: while the Pearl Company is located in Ward 3, the decision to essentially force it's closure is caused by insane development charges that are the same all over the city! So by engaging citizens from other wards on the issue and jumping into the fray you'd be displaying leadership qualities. As it stands, you're stating an less childish equivalent of "I'm only going to talk to my friends because they say what I like to hear". News flash: Being a councilor requires an ability to lead people...including those who disagree with you, in any type of forum-online or otherwise.
