South Waikato News - - OPINION -

I am amazed and dis­gusted to read the mayor and coun­cil­lors’ de­ci­sion to continue court ac­tion against Mrs King. The so-called meet­ing be­hind closed doors sounds more like the Mad Hat­ters tea party. How can their de­ci­sion be jus­ti­fied when it’s go­ing to cause even more ex­pense to ratepay­ers in this bad eco­nomic cli­mate.

The coun­cil seems to stum­ble from one dis­as­ter to an­other and learn noth­ing from the mis­takes made.

If Mr Sin­clair and the coun­cil­lors were re­spon­si­ble for fronting up with the money be­ing paid out for in­ept de­ci­sions, I’m sure they would think twice. It’s so easy to be cav­a­lier with other peo­ple’s money.

In­stead of be­ing hounded by the coun­cil, I think Mrs King de­serves a huge thank you for the hard work she and her fam­ily do for ne­glected and aban­doned an­i­mals.

They work in the foulest of weather to care for these poor crea­tures and this is all at their own ex­pense.

Mr Sin­clair, save ratepay­ers any more le­gal ex­pense and take up Mrs King’s of­fer to be re­spon­si­ble for Jimbo’s care and be­hav­iour. The best out­come and a rea­son­able one. G Cal­lagh­han,
