Dear councillors: you work for us, not yourselves

DEAR councillors,

I write on behalf of my clients, the frustrated ratepayers of the Fraser Coast.

They wish to make it known that they are tired of the political games, undermining and folly in which some of you are engaging.

There have been recent reports that a few of you have shown interest in removing your leader, who was legally appointed by my clients. Please note that you are not employed as an Opposition and you have no right to overrule their decision.

Further, it is suggested some of you are pointing the finger at another body, Fraser Coast Opportunities, and asking what it has achieved.

My clients similarly point the finger and wish to remind you that they spend about $1 million a year on your wages alone - that's almost $20,000 a week.

They therefore ask that you provide the following information:

What is the return to management on that investment so far?

What percentage of that money has been wasted on political infighting?

How much new business or investment have you attracted to the area personally?

Are you using your position to damage the company image or build it up?

Should you fail to provide satisfactory answers, your employment will be reviewed at the appropriate time.

Why would you choose a sleep in over waking up early?

I think one of the advantages of getting up early is listening to the birds and watching the sunrise over a brand new day.

I think the best time of the day is first thing in the morning.
