So you are saying that because Pirri
lives at home with his parents, his views about using tax payer money are not
By extension, does that mean the he should not be a councillor because of
his living arrangements?
I would think that if someone has the balls to
get elected, regardless of their living arrangements, their views are as equal
as anyone else.
I did not say that . You did.
By the by, people without balls get elected all the time.
Usually it takes more than balls.
Reminds me of a wise saying I heard years ago:
It's not about what's between the legs.
It's about what's between the ears, boyo.
Talking about the boy wonder, reminds me of another report on
The director of Environment and Infrastructure reported to Council that removal of chicanes on Mark and Spruce Street means
homeowners can have street parking back.
Putting signs up will cost $400.
It represents the cost of labour.
D'you re-call when Council and staff traipsed out to two high schools a few weeks ago for a phoney- baloney pretend Council meeting to show students how a Council functions.
Well it didn't of course. But everybody thought it was a wonderful and charming idea. Including school functionaries.
A contractor was hired.
Councillors were seated behind tables. Each provided with a microphone.
A sound system was set up. It didn't work at Williams. Councillors couldn't hear a word being said.
I was frozen.
It didn't matter because except for Mayor Dawe and Councillors Abel and Pirri, there was neither opportunity nor requirement for Councillors to participate. .
We were merely the props and backdrop.
We were an hour each at Williams and St Max,
The whole shebang had to be packed up at one school and set up again in the other.
There was a crew of manpower , including crew boss.
All kinds of equipment and vehicles for transport .
It took at least four hours of work and more for wait time which also has to be paid for.
The CAO and the Clerk lost a day's work at the office.
I'd be surprised if that stunt cost less than $10,000.
Make no mistake, it was nothing more than a stunt. No practical advantage whatsoever.
Council was never informed how much it cost.
But we were informed on Tuesday that it costs $400. for town manpower to erect a bunch of street signs. and presumably we were giving approval for the same.
The whole thing at the schools was Pirri's idea with full support from the Mayor.
Anybody in the least bit unenthusiastic(moi) was just lacking in verve and imagination.... and testosterone as well I suppose.
Lord Give me strength ..
