Ed­i­to­rial’s im­pli­ca­tion is most un­for­tu­nate

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

I BE­LIEVE what you have said in your ed­i­to­rial com­ment piece re­gard­ing Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi is most un­for­tu­nate, par­tic­u­larly as you cast it as "Ms Scaffidi has stood strong".

That the CCC re­port is un­likely to swing the elec­tion for var­i­ous rea­sons is hardly the point.

It is not the hall­mark of a "good leader" to say "she would make the same de­ci­sion again" when she has been found guilty of se­ri­ous mis­con­duct.

Your col­umn seems to con­done se­ri­ous mis­con­duct by elected of­fi­cials. That is most un­for­tu­nate as it im­plies it is not se­ri­ous if you can get away with it. Bruce Haynes, Deputy Mayor, Town of Clare­mont. Mayor has stood strong”, Western Opin­ion, Oc­to­ber 13).

Of course, Lisa Scaffidi must be re-elected; who bet­ter rep­re­sents the self-serv­ing ide­ol­ogy that typ­i­fies civic and po­lit­i­cal life in Aus­tralia? Why, it’s al­most like we have our very own Bron­wyn Bishop.

More­over, who do you fancy for the Town of Cam­bridge lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions or are you main­tain­ing a dig­ni­fied jour­nal­is­tic im­par­tial­ity in this in­stance?
