Bring back Blake

South Waikato News - - NEWS/OPINION -

Through the ed­i­tor I wish to write to former mayor Mr Gor­don Blake.

As you will have no­ticed Gor­don, the cur­rent coun­cil is out of con­trol.

Our chief ex­ec­u­tive is mak­ing de­ci­sions with­out in­form­ing the mayor.

We have an un­pro­fes­sional bully for a deputy mayor – check out the Gen­uine Toko­roa Face­book page and see the per­sonal at­tacks through her com­ments to some of our lo­cals.

The mayor has not pulled his deputy up on her be­hav­iour.

Gor­don, you have given your heart and soul to this com­mu­nity and those of us who re­mem­ber you, re­mem­ber a great leader who lis­tened to the peo­ple of this com­mu­nity and we were go­ing places.

This year is elec­tion year, and I know you are get­ting on but if you could find it in your heart to stand and lead our com­mu­nity into a bet­ter fu­ture than is cur­rently be­ing led by this out-of-con­trol coun­cil, I would beg of you to do so.

I’m sorry it has come to this, hav­ing to write this let­ter, but as you can see, des­per­ate times call for des­per­ate mea­sures.

M Smith, Toko­roa
