Clanger upsets citizen of the year

A COMMITTEE member who took the Lord’s name in vain at today’s aborted meeting of the controversial Willow Court Redevelopment Committee was quickly taken to task by one of four members of the public who turned up for the meeting.

After several minutes of particularly pernickety probing by ratepayers Damian Bester and Ngaire Glover, committee member Robert Walker declared that he’d had enough of the pair. “Jesus!” Mr Walker responded after Mr Bester remarked that Mr Walker was free to leave the post-meeting discussion whenever he liked.

Mr Walker’s expression of frustration was taken personally by Derwent Valley Citizen of the Year Jacky Whitehead, who serves as secretary of the Uniting Church and as a Christian said she objected to such language. Mr Walker said he too was a Christian.
