The Council Meeting of the 22nd February was the worst Council Meeting I have ever attended in my 16 years as a councillor.
I do however want to re-assure residents that much good work is done by many councillors in small working groups where they do not "play to the gallery" or press. I find the full council meetings sometimes brings out the worse side of members. Having said that it is usually good humoured and harmless.
There is no doubt in my mind, however, that the most effective meetings at Rushmoor are the panels where councillors work together to find solutions to local problems. You will be pleased to learn this happens all the time in Rushmoor.
