The Mayor of Meander Valley Council says a ‘sh*t sandwich has been delivered up’ by the previous council, in relation to the conduct of Councillor Rodney Synfield.
A Code of Conduct complaint has been upheld against Cnr Synfield, after harassing a female council worker. This included turning up at a property where the woman has horses, and buying her unwanted gifts.
The result of the Code of Conduct complaint is that Cnr Synfield will have to undertake ‘emotional intelligence training,’ which will cost Meander Valley ratepayers $3000.
Wayne Johnston, Mayor of Meander Valley Council, talks to Brian Carlton this morning about this situation and what alternative solutions, if any, are available.
