I have registered two formal complaints following the conduct I was subjected to at the last Pocklington Town Council meeting. Please listen to this recording.
Complaint Mayor Sykes
Mayor Sykes invited me to share with the meeting. As a Pocklington Town Councillor had made false allegations against me I believed this to be exceedingly relevant to bring to the attention of the Town Council. I believe Mayor Sykes:
Councillor Kay West rose to her feet and walked towards me shouting in an aggressive manner. Councillor West had no authority over the meeting and should not have supported the disgraceful conduct against a fellow member. I believe Councillor West:
- Brought the ERYC into disrepute
- Undermined the relationship between Ward members and Parish/Town councils – No Ward member should be invited to speak and then shouted down.
To save resources, I welcome an agreed public apology from both Councillor West and Mayor Sykes. If this is not forth coming I have requested that ERYC commence my formal complaints.
