Sweet­ener for vot­ers

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

AF­TER read­ing the pa­per it ap­pears Bill Louden and G. Fer­gu­son to­tally agree that the present coun­cil­lors need to be given the “flick”. As a sweet­ener for us poor vot­ers I won­der if any of the up and com­ing batch of hope­fuls will tan­ta­lise us with some prom­ises of im­por­tance like ... I (so and so) will not take the ob­scene amount of money cur­rently given to the in­cum­bents al­ready in the job, and I will ac­tu­ally do the job that I was elected to do. Ah, what a pipe dream. Maybe the rules also need to be changed to pro­hibit any own­er­ship of any busi­ness by coun­cil­lors, then there can be no sug­ges­tion of “rort­ing”. Be­sides, how can any­body run a busi­ness and do the job of coun­cil­lor at the same time? One or the other has to suf­fer and I would not like to see the ratepayer get shafted any more, eh?
