LETTER: Lost my respect for role of Louth Mayor

Share this article

Mayor Leonard displays quite disturbing signs of being out of touch with today’s world in his response to Kate Levey’s challenge, which was simply to substantiate his claim that all opponents to the cattle market Judicial Review had a political affiliation with ELDC decision-takers.

Clearly unable to argue, he instead launches personal attacks. He suggests I’m a secret Labour Party weapon, yet I have openly declared my membership on social media!

The mayor has lost all decorum by his intemperate response to a polite, succinct request from a member of the public.

He’s trashed any respect for the mayoral role as a leader in the community after such a rude response and I demand his resignation from a position to which he is evidently unsuited .

Bill Nicholson,

Kidgate, Louth
