Model Code of Conduct for Councillors

When reflecting on this letter from Councillor Freebody recently, I came across this....

  • Model Code of Conduct for Councillors, Local Government Act, 1993, December 2005 Standards of personal behaviour

    a) Councillors must conduct themselves in a manner which will maintain and strengthen the public’s trust and confidence in the integrity of the Council, ensuring that their actions do not detract from the integrity of the Council and avoiding any action which may diminish its standing, authority or dignity.
  • b) Councillors must demonstrate respect for people, including treating others with dignity and respect and ensuring that neither offence nor embarrassment are caused.

My oh my, who put this in the local government act. Methinks they got it from a third world country manual and used it to fill the pages, bears no resemblance to our local councillors.
