BBEG write to David O'Connor, Acting Monitoring Officer, LCC, following Highways PDG Meeting

Dear Mr O'Connor
Having attended today's Highways PDG Meeting, I would like to ask you as Acting Monitoring Officer, how appropriate you think it is for the Chairman of the Highways Policy Development Group (PDG), Cllr Cooper, to deliver a political condemnation of a fellow Councillor to the Group immediately before they make their recommendations to the Executive Group that, "It is not appropriate for a bypass to be used as a single issue for political motives."
These remarks, far from being impartial, as any Chairman should be, were crushing, gratuitous and political, and as such, I consider them to be unacceptable. Especially as Cllr Cooper had tried to earlier emphasise that the Highways PDG was not political!
Boston deserves better.

Yours sincerely

Robert Fisher
Chair, Boston Bypass & Economic Growth Pressure Group (BBEG)
