‘Pot and kettle’ comments will not cause resignation
10:22am Wednesday 4th July 2012 in Letters
I WAS somewhat surprised to read in last week’s Packet a letter from Diane Merrett requesting that myself and two other Cornwall councillors resign.
It appears that the reason for her request is that her view of Article 4 is different to ours. I always thought that in this country a person has a right to an opinion. Obviously Ms Merrett does not agree.
I also find the heading of the letter “Do the decent thing and resign” a little surprising as Ms Merrett in her role as a town councillor has twice in the last two years been suspended from council as a result of her treatment of the public!
In addition to which she was caught passing on confidential information to a suspended member of the town council staff against the instructions of the council. Did she resign? Pot and kettle comes to mind.
Apart from her obsession with rubbish, students and their accommodation, what else does Cllr Merrett do? Recently at a meeting where it was reported that the university had been broken into, she was quick to respond “well they deserve it”, how is conduct like this representing Falmouth Town Council permitted by the mayor and the rest of Falmouth Town Council?
She is quick to condemn but never gives praise where new business opportunities are being created within our town.
Come on Diane change your attitude, stop looking for the bad in people/businesses all the time. We should be rejoicing that they are looking to invest in our town. I am proud of what I have achieved – using my ward member budget to support local projects to ensure growth and continuity, organising the new tree root surface areas around the Moor to prevent tripping hazards, plus many other highways and planning issues in various areas of the Arwenack Ward, just to name but a few.
Should I really take Ms Merrett’s advice? I don’t think so.
