The sacking of a council

Take a look at the report on Glen Eira, anyone who says that they didn't deserve being dismissed is kidding themselves. A quote from the report.

Some Councillors appear to have used their phones in contravention of
the policy; in particular Cr Goudge who made over 20,000 calls in 30
months at a cost in excess of $12,000.

20,000 in 30 months, I suppose when you think about it, it's a call per hour for 22 hours per day, astonishing. Funnily enough I would be a call in those 20,000, read it about it here.

No wonder he sounded to me like the last thing he wanted to was get involved with petty games that people want to play.
