Delighted councillor gave cash to Gables
AS A taxpaying citizen, I was delighted to read that Cllr Patricia Nicholson had donated £1,750 to Gables Farm.
I don't understand the fuss, as no rules have been broken, and in your words "...councillors each get £3,500... to spend as they see fit". It makes a refreshing change to see taxpayers money go to a worthy local cause and not some obscure scheme no one has heard of.
Although the money was not spent in the Peverell area, it has gone to a cause which addresses the problem of stray and unwanted animals and this is a problem affecting all areas of the city. With Christmas coming up, this situation is likely to get worse.
I do not feel Cllr Nicholson has "indulged her personal passion" and in the long run donations like this will benefit this city as a whole, a lot more than a few more park benches or railings.
