At the Council Meeting on 19th of October Councillor Fontana reported he had visited VCAT for the first time and recommended other Councillors do the same.
Astonishing that a Councillor who is so pro-development and is responsible for sending so many of his constituents off to fight for their rights through VCAT, without his support, had absolutely no experience of the process until a month ago.
This is another example of a Councillor who condescends to residents suggesting he is better informed about development issues but who, in fact, is ignorant of the facts and real experiences.
It is time to call out Councillors on their ignorant and condescending behavior. This is best done by voting against them in the next council election 2016.
