‘Councillors should dress appropriately in meetings’

EDITOR - Regarding the recent article in the Spilsby Standard ‘Councillors get short tempered’ (June 29).

I fully agree with Councillor Lenton. Councillor Baugh should wear trousers and not shorts to all meetings connected with Spilsby Town Council.

In my opinion it is inappropriate to wear shorts to any meeting whether it is a sub-group or full council meeting as these meetings are open to members of the public.

I wonder if Councillor Baugh had been successful in his bid to become district councillor would he have worn shorts to their meetings?

I think not.
