Hollow ring

ON reading the Eastern Reporter, one would think an election is imminent because an advert by Councillors Gangell and Pule has appeared over several weeks.

The slogan �Community first and foremost� rings hollow because neither of them has taken any notice of the community�s expressed opposition and or concern on several issues.

Mayor Gangell, when he took office, cancelled the monthly mayor�s column that was there for no other reason than to keep the community informed.

Instead, we have been confronted almost weekly with his picture in the paper. When a mayor treats residents with respect, no matter who they are or how much he may dislike their questions, and leads the council to listen to community opinion, pictures aren�t necessary.

The community will know who you are and respect you.
