Repercussions of Local Elections
I would like to thank the Councillors who worked extremely hard in the community but failed to be re-elected. The job can be both challenging and fulfilling and often extends far beyond the regular working hours. For some it also carries an emotional weight and the reality is some hard decisions have to be made. In view of that, I think that the circulation of an email prior to the election, informing the recipients of the names of the counsellors who had voted in favour of a housing project, appears to have achieved the objective. Hardly fair play. I’m sure the counsellors named in this email would have appreciated the opportunity to explain the basis of their decision and maybe some excellent Councillors would be back making a positive contribution in our community. The future is looking decidedly bleak with talk of carbon tax, increase in the property tax and charges relating to water usage. It emerged that the parties who favour these charges were triumphant in the election which makes it inevitable that the charges will be implemented.
