Dis­ap­prove of ap­proval

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

RE­CENTLY I at­tended a coun­cil meet­ing where I wit­nessed Coun­cil­lors Tony Ric­cia­rdi and Mal For­man lead a seven-to-four vote to al­low Builder Wayne Thomp­son build an in­dus­trial premises within a Res­i­den­tial A area of Woodgate. Of course all the pro­vi­sions and rules were bandied about, but in the long run Woodgate’s peace­ful ex­is­tence was sec­ond to Ric­cia­rdi and Thomp­son get­ting their way. Coun­cil­lor Ric­cia­rdi ranted about car­ing for the peo­ple of Woodgate, but right from the out­set he was bat­ting for Mr Thomp­son, and the 21 writ­ten sub­mis­sions against the pro­posal were dis­re­garded. Beware res­i­dents of Woodgate, this will hap­pen again. With Cr Ric­cia­rdi rep­re­sent­ing you, there will be more res­i­den­tial ar­eas con­verted to in­dus­trial, don’t be fooled. I thank the four coun­cil­lors who voted against this ridicu­lous pro­posal, and the way they fought for Woodgate res­i­dents. If any of you would like to rep­re­sent us in the com­ing elec­tion we wel­come you, as the ma­jor­ity of Woodgate res­i­dents do not have a wor­thy, car­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive at present.
