One of the things I frequently see posted on Thanet blogs is a cycnicism about the standards of councillors. It's well known that the poor behaviour of some councillors has lead to Standards Board investigations and findings.
One of the things that most frustrates and disappoints me is the low standards of conduct and behaviour by some Thanet councillors. There appears to be no respect for the Standards Board process just an attempt to say or do whatever helps an individual no matter what the damage is to the corporate image of Thanet.
I have heard a rumour that some councillors may be seeking to avoid proper procedures. I have notified my Group Leader. He is quite properly immediately reporting it to Thanet Council's Monitoring Officer and Chief Executive to see if there is any truth to the information I have received.
I hope there will be no more tarnishing of Thanet's reputation by individuals who put themselves before the best interests of the community.
