Letter: Support council and move on

A handful of loud negative voices in town have had their 15 seconds of fame, writes Mike Elliott.

Enough already. A handful of loud negative voices in town have had their 15 seconds of fame. Surely, it is time to support city council and allow them to do their job.

As for Julia Butler, all I know is that the city council operates under a set of very strict rules. They voted to remove her from council. This is not a trivial action. I’m sure that council would have done a hundred other things if they had a choice.

Without the specific details, one thing is certain—Julia Butler’s behaviour left the rest of council feeling they had no choice but to begin the process to remove her from office.

So, let’s move on.
