SooToday.com has received the following update from Ward 2 Councillor Susan Myers, regarding her opposition to a KISS concert at the municipally owned Essar Centre in Sault Ste. Marie.

As SooToday.com reported earlier, Myers stood alone last night in voting against a resolution calling for Saultites to visit Kissonline.com and demand a KISS concert for our city.

************************* Hi again David:

It may be of interest for you to know that I have had about a half dozen e-mails (so far) from various Saultites commenting on my position re KISS concert in the Sault.

I have sent the same response to each one, those who have indicated they appreciate and share my position and those who do not.

Here is my response:

Dear fellow Saulitite,

I respect your position, and of course you are entitled to it.

I am unsure as to whether or not you did take a moment to play the YouTube video clip included in the SooToday.com story. The headline "Gene Simmons spitting blood in farewell tour."

The best interests of the community are always at the forefront of my decisions as a community leader.

It is my deepest desire to bring our citizens that which will encourage, delight and uplift the hearts and minds of all Saultites.

This past week's shows including Neil Young, (record breaking attendance) Gordon Lightfoot and last night's Stars On Ice, all with very successful sales, exemplify the calibre of entertainment that I am proud of and thrilled to offer our community and the economic impact is clearly felt.

As an elected official it is indeed my responsibility to make decisions that will bring good to our community.

An individual whose act includes pouring out mouthfuls of blood does not fall into that category at any price.

Sincerely,

Susan Myers City Councillor Ward Two
