May all council candidates please take notice of your front-page headline, ‘What a waste’ (August 24).

A barely used transport service funded by the South Gippsland Council ratepayers costing hundreds of thousands of dollars has finally been canned.

Your editorial goes on to mention the “monumental waste”, confidential meetings and the lack of openness and transparency we have come to expect at South Gippsland.

With the administrators at last due to go, you quote “the administrators spoke in platitudes, obfuscation and spin”.

Will a new council be willing to change this situation?

While I’m at it, how is it that after months and years of pursuing former councillors Andrew McEwen and Jeremy Rich, they both just receive a slap on the wrist. Some interesting headlines and vilification which basically amounts to nothing. What is all that about?
