In a recent letter to this newspaper I published statements on my personal view of the behaviour of Councillor
Michael Whelan during Council meetings, and on my personal view of his public comments regarding the demolition of the Cowes Cultural Centre. I also published a statement calling for Councillor Whelan to make a public apology for his comments.
The statements that I published carried imputations that are not true, and that are likely to lead an ordinary person to think less of Councillor Whelan.
I unreservedly apologise to Councillor Whelan for publishing those comments.
Kevin Griffin, Wonthaggi.
