DID COUN­CIL­LOR USE A RUSE AS SHIELD?

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

PETER Rogers, the Bro Aberf­fraw County Coun­cil­lor has tried to de­velop a ‘straight talk­ing’ im­age. But a week be­fore he was sus­pended by An­gle­sey County Coun­cil, he an­nounced he was no longer go­ing to at­tend Coun­cil or com­mit­tee meet­ings based on some spu­ri­ous rea­sons re­lated to the Welsh Lan­guage.

Now we know his dec­la­ra­tion was a ploy to di­vert at­ten­tion from what was com­ing a week later – he won’t be at coun­cil meet­ings be­cause he has been banned!

His as­ser­tion that the ratepay­ers have saved money is patently ab­surd. The two year in­quiry into his mis­de­meanours has been es­ti­mated to cost £25,000 and will cost more if he ap­peals. Also, new com­plaints about Peter Rogers’s be­hav­iour have been made and another pro­tracted and costly in­quiry is un­der­way.
