WE NEED NEW COUNCIL
IT is as well that the Melville Council individual was exonerated, but the mayor does carry on doesn’t he?
It simply does not add up that his administration appointed a keen sympathiser of the wave group to make an ‘impartial evaluation of its proposal, and prejudice its results against the local community interest, all the while repeating a misleading mantra that the proposal was ‘unsolicited’?
The council knew about it and have gone out of their way to facilitate it covertly, and with that sleight-of-hand that is the trademark of career politicians.
No wonder the mayor is angry.
It seems that these exemplary standards of council conduct have spread to ‘young guns’
There is no imagination here and little sensitivity to future needs of an ageing community.
That is not balanced at all.
It is time to save our best remaining public recreational areas from a litter of unneeded ‘Aubreytopian’ monuments, in private hands.
Let us vote in a better and more transparent council.
