RE: Seaton mayor hits back at 'independent body' claims

Its funny that now our mayor, Sandra Semple, has been asked to resign from the Regeneration board, she's decided that the board is involved in no more than "rubber stamping and window dressing".

If she felt this way, why did she agree to sit on it in the first place? It seems to me 'sour grapes' to condemn a group that, up to this week, she was fully involved with.

Is it more that Mrs Semple likes to do things her way and how dare anyone tell her differently?

Whatever your thoughts on our mayor's action, this publicity can only bring more disrepute to our council, and ultimately our town.

To claim she was acting as a member of the public not as the mayor or councillor, is a cop out.

That is one loophole that needs closing. Your views are your views, whatever 'hat' you're wearing.

I am writing this as a member of the public, not a Seaton trader.

I hope you can now see how ridiculous that statement is!
