Surely all you Administration councillors reading this can see that there is something not quite right here? Put your prejudices against this forum aside, and ask yourself if these actions are what you were thinking about when you got involved in local politics? Is this how you thought you would make ER a better place to live and work in?

TCC are being targetted for one reason, the failure to co-opt the girlfriend of an ERC councillor. This has resulted in their Chair suddenly being found ineligible for membership due to the boundary suddenly to be 2.5m from his house, despite being fine for years (not forgetting years of voluntary service to the community, for absolutely no gain), and now these bully boy tactics being used against them.

Why didn't Lisa just put her name down at the elections? There were not enough nominees to warrant an actual election, so she'd would have been straight on.

The threat to dissolve the cc's is pointless by erc.

under the regulations that they must comply with where there is no cc then if 20 or more electors request the creation of a cc to the local authority then elections must be put in place.

if there are 3 cc's with at least 10 community councillors = 30 requests = 3 new cc's in given time.

result = waste of everyone's time and council tax payers money all because they want to take charge and neuter local communities.

How ironic is it that councillors Green Kane and Hay will all get vote on this when their wards cover nmcc but don't bother attend the monthly meetings. Given their lack of interest in nmcc should they not do the decent thing and abstain or support their wards community councillors. Or start to turn up once in a while.

BJ67 - you might think this, I couldn't possibly comment.
It is true that one of them has only attended 1.5 CC monthly meetings in Newton Mearns out of a possible 55.
Makes the salary an eye watering hourly rate if based on NMCC attendance which obviously is an unfair statistic to put forward.
