Coun­cil­lors should get on with the day job

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Sir, I am dis­ap­pointed to note three re­cently- elected Argyll and Bute coun­cil­lors – Alan Reid (Lib­eral Democrats), Aileen Mor­ton (Lib­eral Democrats) and Gary Mul­vaney (Con­ser­va­tive and Union­ist) – have de­cided to stand as can­di­dates in the gen­eral elec­tion on June 8.

While it is not un­usual for coun­cil mem­bers to put them­selves for­ward for par­lia­men­tary con­sid­er­a­tion, the tim­ing here is sus­pect and shows a com­plete lack of re­gard for both the coun­cil and the elec­torate of Argyll and Bute.

I urge these coun­cil­lors to serve their con­stituents and com­mu­ni­ties by get­ting on with the day job that they were elected to just two weeks ago. Coun­cil­lor Julie McKen­zie, Creag Bhan Vil­lage, Oban.
