You may have caught sight recently of John Anderson’s, (aka Fast Buck$), continuing deterioration in the form of lodging code of conduct complaints against several councillors, myself included.
I would ask him to refrain from wasting Council’s resources in future with these spurious complaints, which are really about hurt ego (the main content of several complaints was that we weren’t listening to him).
The latest round, which Council were obliged to pay a few thousand dollars to independent consultants to investigate, revealed no surprises when it was found there were no code of conduct breaches at all. Participation in public debate is better exercised and gets better results when constructively working with people on the issues rather than as a platform for self-aggrandisement.
Perhaps Mr Anderson could reflect on this and consider reimbursing Council for the costs incurred? Wasting our time in public access is one thing, but wasting Council’s money – well we just don’t have enough of it.
