Dear Councillor Mrs Phillips,
As a member of a council responsible for a great many historic towns and villages, and also caretaker of the public purse, could I ask you to be especially vigilant against maladministration within the Wealden District Council.
It is my experience that your council has allowed some departments to run riot with taxpayers money. Some officers have used council resources for their own goals and as a playground for acts of impropriety. Sometimes to cover up mistakes, and other times to pursue agendas for profit or personal ambitions and desires.
It had taken me more than 20 years to finally reach an understanding with your council about the Generating Station at Herstmonceux, but then your council reneged on the agreement in the County Court. I hope you agree that we cannot afford to let situations like that develop again to drain the council and lead to widespread bad feeling and mistrust.
You were elected to serve the community, not the officers. You were elected to run the council to the best of your ability, after consideration of the issues that matter. It is your duty to conserve the historic built and natural environments. It is also your duty to seek to secure adequate services, education, policing and health care.
These are particularly difficult times, where public funding is under scrutiny against local issues and terrorism and global warming are serious international issues that should be targeted for spending, rather than waste money pursuing lost causes.
Even as I write, identified international dangers are looming and if allowed to escalate unchecked, may put our country and indeed the world as we know it at risk. We can all play our part by doing what we do to the best of our ability.
If we run a tight ship with a clear desk, when something important finds its way on our laps, we will be better able to deal with it. We must conserve our energies for fights that matter.
I would be very interested to learn what sustainable policies your council, and your political party are putting in place, and if you agree whatever has been proposed is effective. I should also like to know if you support the current policies or oppose them?
As a resident of Wealden, I am relying on you to do the right thing for your district. As an inhabitant of planet earth I am relying on you to keep your eye on broader issues and play your part on the international team that is the human race.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. If I do not hear from you, I must assume that you agree with my comments, and will do all you can to put the matter right. If the matter is not put right, I will assume that your hands are tied up by the chief executive and his heavies and that you dare not raise a finger to help.
