Torbay Mayor, Gordon Oliver, will host the third Mayor's Forum with the theme of regeneration and job creation in the Bay on Thursday 25 April 5.30pm to 9pm at the Rosetor Room, Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay. The forum is an opportunity for all those who are passionate about improving life in the Bay to hear about new projects and future plans from the council and its partners.
The above is from the Herald Express.
Now a forum, if my dictionary is correct is a meeting to discuss matters of general interests. Last year it was hardly that, The mayor and sidekicks talked for what seemed like hours and then followed a short period of questions from the audience, some of which weren’t answered in any depth. My question concerning reimbursements to bus companies for concessionary bus travel was passed over to a council official who said he would answer the question after the meeting. Hardly a discussion.
Anyway, if you like being bored stupid, get along to the meeting. I will be there and ask the mayor as many awkward questions as you can, even if it is just to annoy him and let him know how unpopular he is.
