The signs of a Narcissist (Ottawa Citizen, 20 Feb 2010, Page J2)

Do you know which narcissists YOU recently elected ? How many of the attached newspaper's criteria apply to them ? Check them off to identify your very own narcissistic Langley politicians! I count at LEAST 2 easily enough without even trying! Hint they are always lobbying hard to get their pictures often in both Langley papers! Both papers easily accommodate!

Bigger Hint, they are both males (over 95% of narcissists are always predominantly male) both are certainly politically self infatuated and ambitious and certainly also clearly dislike each other and will most certainly run against each other as mayor candidates with very ruthless and very characteristic self important and expensive vanity campaigns in

What Grade Does Mayor Green & His 2009 Annual Report Card Deserve?

Rookie Langley Township Mayor Rick Green earlier this evening at the Council meeting presented his long overdue past year's (2009) annual council achievement report card which is normally proudly presented as somewhat of a taxpayer's pre Xmas present listing of ALL the previous year's Township Council achievements. I don't ever remember seeing it used as a personal political platform justification attempt before.
