Don’t elect the same old dinosaurs in Argyll
Sir, Another election is looming. At least some of our Argyll and Bute councillors have had the decency to retire (some should have years ago).
Yet out of the woodwork come former councillors seeking to return to the fold. In my my opinion they should stay away as they have been puppets for the retiring council leader, Dick Walsh.
You would not put these candidates, if elected, in charge of any council policies, never mind have them as guardians of the council’s finances. In fact, you would not let them do car park duty.
Just look at the state of Argyll’s roads, refuse collections, the infrastructure in disarray and folk living on Dickensian wages, thanks to the existing members at Kilmory.
These councillors, who are not fit for the role, get better jobs, salaries and pensions as big as their egos.
More of these elected members should retire and let in new blood as they are past their sell-by date.
I would caution voters to choose very carefully come May 4. Vote for change because, if you don’t, we will be left with the same old dinosaurs and Argyll will be the new Jurassic Park.
