Although we reported that The Conservative Councillor for Hindhead Christiaan Hesse was dumped by your Waverley ten days ago, at last night’s Full Council Meeting it was announced officially by Leader Julia Potts. Saying – “he hasn’t turned up here for six months.”
Whisper who dares – and he does – frequently, in bounded, Lib Dem Godalming Councillor Paul Follows – who simply mentioned that since joining ‘Your Waverley’ he has enjoyed the “vigorous debating” and “ideas” put forward at various council meetings, at which he only wished more Conservative councillors would – “turn up and attend.” Adding that their non-attendance was an insult to the residents who elected them. WOW!
An utterly arrogant Mayor Denise Le Gal lightheartedly interjected by saying with a smile – they were normally referred to as…
CHINOS – ‘COUNCILLORS HERE IN NAME ONLY!’
At which point up shot Carole Cockburn saying she hoped the day would never come when councillors would have to spell out their reasons for non-attendance. Which could be through illness or personal.
But not to even have the good grace to write, or respond to the Council and resign Cllr Cockburn?
