Independents did not walk out

First published in Letters by

RECENTLY, Coun Keith Knaggs led his Conservative group on Ryedale District Council in a childish walkout.

In the Gazette & Herald dated November 14, Coun Janet Sanderson attempted to excuse the walkout by saying, “several of the Independent councillors had already left the chamber”.

I was at the council meeting in question and I know for a fact that no Independent councillors walked out.

In fact, they were left as stunned as everyone else in the room, including council officers, the chairman of the meeting and members of the public, at such childish behaviour by the leading group on the council.

Such a blatant untruth in a letter can only lead people to question the validity of the rest of it.

Coun T Woodward (Lib), Pickering
