Councillor to face public hearing
A HEARING to listen to complaints from senior council officers about the behaviour of an Argyll councillor will take place in Kilmory.
Former Argyll College chief executive Councillor Michael Breslin was reported to the committee for Standards in Public Life last year by three senior officials.
The nature of the complaint has never been in the public domain.
Following a long investigation by the commissioner, Councillor Michael Breslin revealed he was about to be ‘tried for his actions’.
Councillor Breslin said: ‘The Standards Commissioner intends to proceed to a public hearing on the complaint against me, the details of which I cannot make public.
‘Despite asking for it to be in Dunoon, on the basis that this would attract more public interest, they have decided on Kilmory on September 20, 21 and 22.
‘They appear to think our newly refurbished pier buildings are not appropriate for some reason.’
The Standards Commissioner declined to comment on the situation.
