Non-responsiveness - Ignorance or Arrogance?

The Beagle Editor,

It's amazing that we rarely hear comments from our elected representatives here, or in other media, when subjects raised deserve to be clarified or, in the case of some pretty outlandish ones, clarified or denied for the sake of an accurate public record. The same thing could be said for senior managers who should also be wishing for the true facts to be known. So, in the absence of the truth being made known, it must be known that it is only human nature to suspect the worst. It follows then, that such non-responsiveness to issues being discussed in the community will be perceived as being ignorance or arrogance. Councillors and council management do read and/or receive information about what is appearing in the media so the word "ignorance" in the above sense does not mean "unaware". If these opinions are misguided, please respond

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
