It’s a crass view
11:00am Sunday 20th May 2012 in Your View
AS an elected member of Barnt Green Parish Council, my underlying motivation is transparency in meetings and dealings with residents.
Imagine my incomprehension responding to a churlish letter regarding our decision to give each household in the parish a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee mug (Your View, May 9).
This is the writer’s right, but, to hide behind the anonymity of name and address supplied is questionable. If the writer is a resident of Barnt Green, I anticipate them refusing the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee mug when it is offered. Should I stand for Barnt Green Parish Council again, the writer can vote me out of office as can any other resident holding the same crass view at what is a significant historic event.
