Rose-coloured

I would suggest my friend and letter writer Frank Horner remove his rose-coloured glasses.

I would suggest my friend and letter writer Frank Horner remove his rose-coloured glasses.

Horner states in his latest attack on our current council: “There were no gangs in previous council.

Differences of opinion were debated and resolved with the electorate’s wishes in mind.”

I attended council meetings on a regular basis for over 15 years and once Teunis Westbroek was elected mayor we saw the original gang of three — Westbroek and Barry Avis for nine years, along with Scott Tanner most of the way.

I sat at meeting after meeting and saw highly qualified and dedicated councillors such as Anton Kruyt, Jack Wilson, Wendy Mauer and Mike Wansink put forward many well-thought-out and useful suggestions which were totally ignored by the original gang.  Horner attended these same meetings and I guess some people only see what they want to see. Time to take off the glasses Horner, and take a look at the real world.
