Rex Simpson Makes a Stand

Rex made a statement during the Members Reports section of yesterday's meeting that will resonate around the Peninsula.

Rex risked the wrath of our beloved leader by reporting that several punters who were game to front the Annual Plan Hearings had complained of the way in they were treated by the Chair. 

Glenn will not be best pleased to hear that there is a large group of people who do not necessarily appreciate his robust approach to chairing meetings - particularly where he is a position to bully submitters.

Rex is right - it is time that the Council as a whole simply told Glenn that his behaviour is unacceptable - every submitter is entitled to courtesy and respect, and their submissions should not be subjected to ridicule and criticism from the Chair.

Other members need to take a step back from following his lead, and attempting to match his rudeness - none have the wit to even sound funny.
