As a past chairman of the Makarewa River Liaison committee I am disgusted with the reported antics of one of Environment Southland’s staff.
Should the police not be involved? Sacking isn’t good enough.
I have noticed in the past five to seven years an arrogance towards dairy farming in general among some staff.
Farmers are wholly sick of this stupid attitude.
I will quote the last paragraph of my final annual report to the council.
“We hope that if you, who stand to be elected, take a good look at yourselves and ask yourselves do you think you are fit to pontificate over the rest of us.”
