Cllr Dawe wrote last week (20.3.14) that to be a Horsham district councillor:
‘…you need a thick skin since you will inevitably become involved in doing something an individual resident or larger group doesn’t like and they will write to both you and probably this paper…’
Need a thick skin? After the treatment of Cllr Christian Mitchell meted out by Cllr Dawe and Cllr Helena Croft (Roffey North) in their ‘secret court’ before Cllr Dawe’s sacking of Cllr Christian Mitchell as chairman-elect I’d think you’d need to be the ‘Man of Steel’ and have bulletproof skin to withstand what Cllr Dawe, Cllr Croft and their Cabinet colleagues dish out to those that disagree with them.
Be a Horsham district councillor with Ray Dawe and Helena Croft as your leaders? No thanks.
