Coun­cil merg­ers

Monthly Chronicle - - Letters To The Editor - Mick Marr, Berowra

I do know that if two peo­ple who don’t like each other are forced to get mar­ried, there is a high prob­a­bil­ity it will end up be­ing a neg­a­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for all stake­hold­ers that can lead to sep­a­ra­tion and di­vorce.

There are many ratepay­ers al­ready be­liev­ing they don’t have enough say in what their money is spent on, or what facilities are pro­vided by Coun­cil as part of this demo­cratic process. Be­ing told “you will unite whether you like it or not” sounds a lit­tle un­demo­cratic to me and more like the ruler of a king­dom.

So I hope forc­ing Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai to unite won’t end up with a di­vided, es­tranged com­mu­nity look­ing to sep­a­rate and di­vorce.
