Mayor Michael Laws

I’m never going to be listed as a charter member of the Michael Laws fan club, but I have to say these code of conduct complaints against him are just stupid.

Laws got elected last year by a massive majority. I am sure those who voted for him knew his style of being abrasive, provocative etc etc. To complain that he is disrespectful about people in his SST column is just idiotic – so what? If you do not like what he says, then don’t vote for him.

Code of conduct complaints should be for serious stuff like if you get into a fight with a council staff member or threaten someone. It should not be used to try and restrict the ability of an elected Mayor to say what he thinks.
