Dear editor, Re: Independent & Free Press, Nov. 15, article: "Mayor: Bonnette earns second term with ease." When misinformation is given, it needs be to corrected. Challenger Rob Heaton, in giving reasons for his failure to get elected, is quoted as saying: "I don't have all the developers funding my campaign and paying for all my signs and all my literature." which, by implication, claims that Mayor Bonnette did. I acted as the mayor's financial officer for the campaign and can attest that no monies were accepted for the mayor's campaign from developers. All donations were from individual friends and local business people unconnected to the development industry. Anyone wishing to verify this can examine the mayor's audited financial statements at the Clerk's Office after April 2, 2007. The real reason Mr. Heaton lost the election was because, in the words of the editors of Toronto Star on Nov. 11, he was "devoid of credibility". Gerald Rennie, Acton
