Dav­i­son de­served bet­ter than this

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

PARTY is­sues can some­times work against the pub­lic in­ter­est. I was both sur­prised and dis­ap­pointed to read (May 24) that Cllr Dav­i­son had been “booted out as a coun­cil del­e­gate” on the Julie Rose Sta­dium man­age­ment com­pany by the se­lec­tion and re­cess com­mit­tee of the bor­ough coun­cil. Cllr Dav­i­son has worked very hard over the past few years as chair­man of the board and I doubt if any­one would deny that the sta­dium is in a stronger po­si­tion than it was when he be­came chair­man. The gen­eral com­mu­nity has rea­son to be grate­ful for his lead­er­ship and ex­per­tise. As a for­mer coun­cil­lor, I was not al­ways in agree­ment with Peter Dav­i­son but I be­lieve, as I am sure your read­ers be­lieve, that there needs to be more em­pha­sis on fair play and im­par­tial judge­ment and less em­pha­sis on my­opic party pol­i­tics.
