IT’S NO ‘BEAT-UP’

Melville Times - - Opinion -

UN­BE­LIEV­ABLY, He­len Maynier, wife of Al­fred Cove Ac­tion Group con­vener David Maynier, has been cau­tioned for il­le­gal clear­ing of veg­e­ta­tion in front of their river­front home.

He­len claims she was ‘weed­ing;’ how­ever I’d beg to dif­fer – cut­ting off branches of na­tive trees and ap­ply­ing her­bi­cides in an A-Class na­ture re­serve is an act of van­dal­ism.

Mrs Maynier ap­par­ently climbed over a fence to ac­cess the area, and was care­ful to con­duct her ‘weed­ing’ in the early hours of the morn­ing.

The branches re­moved from the site were not weeds.

Both David and He­len have a very clear un­der­stand­ing of the area, and ev­ery law-abid­ing ci­ti­zen knows not to take mat­ters into their own hands.

David Maynier claims this is just a ‘beat up’ by the City of Melville to dis­credit him, but I think David and He­len have done an ex­cel­lent job of do­ing that all by them­selves. CRAIG CADDY Melville
