Public Apology from Clr Gash

On 27 June 2017 at the Ordinary Meeting of Shoalhaven City Council, Councillor Gash made the following statement of apology with respect to the previous resolution of Council – Code of Conduct Investigation:

 

“Firstly, I would like to thank council for allowing me to present these comments in open council. I would have wished for the full report to have been made public, however, council has determined that the full report is to remain confidential.

 

As the Shoalhaven citizens are aware, I have always provided transparency and accountability to our residents both as a previous Federal Member, and as Mayor and now as a councillor.

 

In October, last year, I made statements in the South Coast Register and radio 2ST regarding the city wide "Gash must Go" brochure and materials that were distributed in the lead up to the 2016 September Council elections and the thank you flyers distributed by Mrs. Watson.

 

I hasten to add that the South Coast Register absolutely printed my words verbatim, however it was this statement that was the cause of the Code of Conduct Review.

 

Following a review of the statements made under Council’s Code of Conduct, I made a mistake and used incorrect words . .However, due to confidentiality I was unable to prove why I made these statements. My other mistake was that I was under the misapprehension that even though Mrs. Watson was campaign manager, Director, and spokesperson for the Shoalhaven Independents Group,  under the Code Mrs. Watson is classified as a member of the public and consequently is protected from comments made by myself as a councillor.

 

I had no intention of causing any upset by what I said and I recognise that my statements did not accurately reflect my values, and I am very sorry for having called Mrs Watson a hypocrite.

 

I am very sorry for my regrettable words and I offer this public apology to Councillors and Mrs. Watson.

 

Councillors, Ladies and Gentlemen, I firmly believe in the Proverbs 28:13 " He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy"
