Gary Turland resigns as Deputy Mayor


GARY TURLAND has angrily resigned from his post as Wingecarribee Shire Council Deputy Mayor .

It followed a Notice of Motion put forward by Councillor Turland at last night's meeting calling on  General Manager ANN PRENDERGAST to provide written and verbal reports on how the Berrima Road Project failed in its critical path process, what she proposed to do to stop all projects failing.. and what she has done to stop any future project from failing.

It led to some heated words between Councillor Turland and Mayor DUNCAN GAIR before his motion was defeated by a vote of 5-4.

It was then he announced " Over this issue I will not stand here as Deputy Mayor - You choose someone who will do it" and resigned on the spot.
The Mayor asked if he wished to reconsider, to which he answered " No what's the point.. I don't want any part of it."
