Disgusted by staff

By Gerald Gunther

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.”

    The compliance officer implicated must go and charges must follow. In my opinion The compliance Manager must take responsibility and resign, this issue runs much deeper and the behaviour of compliance staff has been a long concern of farmers in Southland.

    Many of us in the farming community have felt that the staff at ES were out of control. This has been a long time coming in my view and I applaud the local media for highlighting this issue.
