Councillor Chadwick "Flamed"

The article in the July 23rd edition of the Enterprise-Bulletin entitled "Chadwick's blog, speed bumps criticized at council" is long overdue. Councillor Chadwick's use of his personal blog to continually attack the Mayor and and now criticize Town staff is unprofessional to say the least. If this type of behaviour was exhibited by an employee in the private sector world, you'd get a severance package handed to you pretty quick. It's hypocritical to denounce his fellow Council membcrs and criticize Town employees via his blog while constantly claiming that the Mayor does nothing to promote a co-operative and cohesive "team" effort at the Council table. Congratulations to Mayor Carrier, Councillor Edwards and Public Works Director Ed Houghton for standing up to and "flaming" this Council member as the EB article stated. Unless I am mistaken, this two time Councillor was hardly given a ringing endorsment by the voters in the last two elections finishing last on the list candidates to obtain his place at Council. Hopefully should he elect to run again, the voters of Collingwood will be the ones to "flame" him the next time.
