Re: Carol Johnson letter (August 17).

Whilst some would like to blame only sacked councillors Hill and McEwen for the debacle of the last South Gippsland Shire Council, one must remember there were nine of them.

As a former four term councillor and former mayor, I personally witnessed some abhorrent behaviour.

All nine former sacked councillors must take full responsibility for our council being sacked.

The upcoming local elections are an opportunity for all voters to reaffirm this type of behaviour will not be tolerated ever again! We can only vote for nine fresh faces.
