To debate a motion at council is essential, but to berate another councillor because you disagree with the motion is NOT in the spirit of the Councillor Code of Conduct Policy of the Bass Coast Shire. Berating another councillor for doing his job is wrong.
I would say Cr [Les] Larke’s credentials and the fact that he works for and was elected by the ratepayers whose money (hard earned) the council uses gives Cr Larke every right to question the financial side of council.
Maybe if all council candidates were required to have a full and proper understanding of council’s finances there wouldn’t be so much wastage or financial reserves. Remember as a councillor, you are representing the ratepayers in ALL
areas of council’s activities.
