(RE­GARD­ING Ro­gin Tay­lor’s let­ter, Whit­sun­day Coast Guardian, Jan­uary 13): Re­mem­ber the pur­chase of the Haven­grand ru­ral land wast­ing $2.5 mil­lion of ratepay­ers’ money?

Re­mem­ber the wasted $10.5 mil­lion of flood dam­age funds from the 2010 Na­tional Disas­ter Re­lief Re­cov­ery Ar­range­ments?

You would think that for all the years Ro­gin sat at that ta­ble as deputy mayor, he would have learnt some­thing.

But in­stead, last week he ques­tioned the in­tegrity of our present most com­pe­tent and hon­est coun­cil ad­min­is­tra­tion our re­gion has ever seen.

He of­ten au­thors Let­ters to the Editor, holds pub­lic meet­ings and protests to start the process for the re-in­state­ment of friends to man­age our coun­cil.

It is worth re­mem­ber­ing that fa­mous French phrase: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
