Why is it that as soon as the Libs finally get a decent Mayor in the chair in Roy Maggio – thanks to the two Labor Left councillors who boycotted the last Ryde Mayoral Election – they want to cause a shitfight amongst themselves and deprive Ryde of its “Peoples’ Mayor”?
Cr Maggio gets involved in the kind of stuff you want a Mayor to get involved in – keeping our kids healthy and active and those niggly little things that affect his constituents like roads, graffiti and open space.
He doesn’t spend much time getting involved in putting council through expensive legal actions or sham ICAC inquiries that create more dysfunction and waste NSW taxpayer money and indirectly, ratepayer funds as a result of lost productivity on council.
And Cr Maggio is not popular with some of the cliques in Ryde Council’s administration who continue to protect the interests of some of the management “cancer” recently removed from Top Ryde HQ. That’s because he wants to hold them accountable. And that’s what you want in a local government politician.
The Weekly Times tells it how it is ahead of the Sept 9 #Ryde Mayoral election – The “Peoples’ Mayor” Roy Maggio deserves another term despite the Libs being undecided on their candidate – the choice is between Sarkis Yedelian, who would also make a great Lib Mayor.
Incredibly, W Pickering, would become the first lobbyist/Mayor if he somehow managed to convert his “snowflake in Hell” chance in getting elected and has the support of his Civic Centre Redevelopment buddy Artin Ekmetdjian.
