Councillors should reply to correspondence.

Dear Editor

It’s around four months since the Shires Council elections were held. Nine councillors, which includes the mayor, were elected by the shire’s voters and residents to represent residents and voters at council. The voting community supported and trusted nine individuals to convey their messages and discuss their business at council meetings. They didn’t expect any of the nine to ignore them and not reply to correspondence, as is occurring at present, once they were elected and on the ratepayer funded payroll. Nor did they expect any of the nine elected community representatives to roll over and be led by public servants and state bureaucrats. Unfortunately though that’s what seems to be occurring on the local scene here in the Eurobodalla Shire. If the elected community representatives, the councillors, didn’t wish to represent the voters of the shire in the workings of the local council, which is funded by the residents of the shire, why did they nominate for election earlier this year. Was it just all for personal benefit and attempting to climb the political ladder to Sydney or Canberra ?
