Upon reading about Bobbie Drew’s removal as Deputy Mayor, I was shocked and embarrassed by the behaviour of councillors Back and Kett. This is not public school, this is a high profile, important position in our township. If they cannot behave and act accordingly, then sadly this job may be too big for them.
Certainly, this is not the behaviour we want in a Deputy Mayor - someone who would be in charge should Mayor Rowett be unable to fulfill his duties.
It appears that these ‘newbies’ are scrambling to position themselves for bigger things before they have even learned the ropes and job at hand, not even one year into the term. It sounds to me like they are driven by something other than what is in the best interest of our communities.
