Claims Kapiti Councillor victimised

The Editor

Smears of the most obnoxious type against Councillor David Scott are indicative not of the councillor's alleged wrongdoing, but of the continuing dysfunction of KCDC, despite His Worship Gurunathan being elected to end the nonsense that pervaded the prior council. There seems to be a long-running pattern of victimisation.

Questions that need asking, rather than the regurgitation of bilge, include: 1. Why was this supposedly confidential complaint leaked to the media? There were very few who knew about the matter; 2. Why did the complainant forward details of her complaint to a contractor engaged in work for KCDC that David Scott has opposed?

I know from my own experiences of two years ago, having been falsely accused of chasing a female councillor around chamber with my walking stick, in order to have me silenced, how readily a few senior staff and councillors will blatantly lie and seemingly think nothing of destroying one's reputation to advance some agenda. His Worship Gurunathan knows this full well.

Hopefully others who have been victimised by council with lies and smears will step forward and expose what is happening. It is ironic, or perhaps predictable, that the one councillor who is known as a man of honour and integrity finds himself in this situation.

Dear Jackie The perversion of justice was initiated by whoever leaked the complaint to Joel Maxwell, who then proceeded to write an article that some such as Tim Fookes found to be of a gutter level character.

Dear Mr Bolton, I will attempt to answer your questions in the interests of accurate information being available to the public as council and the police deal with this sad and sensitive issue. To make assertions as in your opening statement is paramount to attempting to pervert the course of justice. Fairfax media staff have not stated who leaked the story to them. KCDC have contracted the services of the same legal firm to manage employment issues for the past three years. Their engagement in this issue is no deviation from standard practice. As this matter is under active investigation by the police, I will not comment further on the opinions you have expressed. I hope this is of some assistance to you. Kind Regards Cr Jackie Elliott
