Dear Addressees:The following is an excerpt from the Subject meeting which bears on the question of Councillor Kovach’s summary removal from the Police Services Board:
“23. Moved by Councillor Laidlaw
Seconded by Councillor Furfaro
THAT Mayor Farbridge and Councillor Kovach be appointed to the Guelph Police Services Board for a four
year term expiring November,2014.
VOTING IN FAVOUR:Councillors Bell,Findlay,Furfaro,
Wettstein and Farbridge (11)
VOTING AGAINST: (0)
Does this not make it clear? Even Coun. Leanne Piper voted in January 2011 to appoint Coun. Gloria Kovach to the Guelph Police Services Commission for four years.
Why did Mayor Karen Farbridge allow this to be changed? A legally appointed member of Council was prevented from performing her appointed responsibilities. She was deposed by an 8 to 5 vote to satisfy the pure political lust of another councillor. Coun. Piper manipulated deposing a veteran and accomplished councillor. Then, was voted in by an 8 to 5 margin to replace Coun. Kovach
As the Late Ronald Reagan used to say: “There they go again.”
