Disgusted at councillor’s resignation comments
10:28am Wednesday 4th July 2012 in Letters
I WRITE to express my disgust concerning Councillor D Merrett's letter regarding resignations. I consider her comments to be both facetious and distasteful, especially when she herself has been suspended on two occasions from council meetings, for her unbecoming behaviour and for unprofessional conduct when carrying out her duties. I consider that both councillors Varney and Eva, when on Falmouth Council, did an excellent job and much progress was made for Falmouth and its people. We all know that Cllr Merrett has a problem with students in Falmouth; she has never made a secret of that fact. I respect her views regarding students, but please remember, however, while problems can be caused at times they spend money in Falmouth.
In my opinion if Cllr Merrett has her way we are taking major steps backwards, after all we are supposedly living in a democracy.
Cllr Merrett and others should look at themselves, instead of attempting to increase their powers. Surely someone should be looking at the reason four councillors, including myself, resigned from the council.
Cllr Merrett should surely work within the system of the council without calling for other county councillors to resign. If she cannot do that, then she is the one who should resign, sooner rather than later.
