Dear Mr Lovejoy,
I am returning last week’s copy of The Echo in protest and shock at your editorial.
I was sickened by the vitriolic and personal attack on those council members.
I’m not sure what your agenda. In my opinion you are not doing your job as a professional journalist, and you have really gone too far. Your lack of impartiality and personal vendetta makes you look nasty and stupid.
No political system is perfect, but in this Shire we cling to a beacon of progressive thinking. Who would do the job of a councillor for $20k a year and endure all this grief?
My dealings with Council have mainly been over traditional Green issues. While Council staff response can be frustratingly inconsistent, I have always had support from councillors – particularly the Greens.
I wonder if you realise the harm you are doing on the recently bereaved mayor and Cr Martin’s bad health?
I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve, or why, but you will have to bear the consequences.
