The other day a revelation hit this community like a lightening bolt strike when we found out our CAO was meeting privately with council to discuss who knows what? Was beer served? Were dancing girls invited to perform? Who knows?
Read more on this here…
What we do know is this news hit us like a bombshell. After all, the last council kept the local presses rolling overtime when it was found out they were doing the same thing i.e. having private meetings among themselves.
Is this any different? The only difference I can see is this council is getting PAID on our dime to attend these meetings, while we who are paying the bills are left in the dark as to what is going on at them? At least the last council didn’t charge us for their indiscretions, but this one sure is.
Not only do I find this highly objectionable but more than likely illegal, and certainly unethical and immoral in my opinion. Might as well lump democracy in with Fascism because they are both in the same category now from what I am seeing. Secret meetings, dark rooms, plots, intrigues… the list goes on and on. Today it seems with these guys its all about US and THEM.
Somebody stop the bus and let me off because I just can’t take it anymore… :-(
A committee is a cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled.
