Town’s coun­cil­lors should all re­sign and then see what hap­pens!

Drogheda Independent - - THE DIARY -

A DE­CI­SION to cut the coun­cil­lors’ bud­get in the Drogheda Mu­nic­i­pal District drew an an­gry re­ac­tion at last week’s meet­ing in Bar­low House.

They see it as just an­other ex­am­ple of un­der­min­ing the town and those that rep­re­sent it.

Right or wrong, that’s their view and fair play to them on that stance.

There has also been plenty of de­bate about the re­moval of the plas­tic bot­tle banks in the county. They are now fill­ing up green bins or sim­ply be­ing dumped on the side of the road and in fields around the place.

Over­all the coun­cil­lors feel Drogheda is be­ing ne­glected and say it’s time for change.

Ok, let’s make the big­gest call out there - let’s see what hap­pens if the coun­cil­lors - en masse - re­signed.

If the coun­cil do not back down and re­in­state the plas­tic bot­tle banks or meet the calls they’ve made then make the ul­ti­mate stand.

If they are not be­ing lis­tened to - they feel - and if they say their role is be­ing com­pletely di­min­ished to a stage that they have no power at all, cre­ate the big­gest po­lit­i­cal state­ment out there for the town of Drogheda and make na­tional head­lines.
