I’m rather concerned about this remark from the minutes of Kent TV Board of governors which concerns Trudy Dean opposition leader of Kent Council “A discussion was had by the board regarding the tone and accuracy of a press release by Trudy Dean which had called for the scrapping of Kent TV. Bill Feeley thought that the Board (non KCC staff) should reply to Trudy’s press release.”
This issue was pointed out by a contributor in an earlier post, who asks “how can some members of the board write to Trudy Dean (now leader of KCC opposition) just because she critises Kent TV. Surely the board collectively has to do this? Since you have communications maybe T. Oliver can explain this to you Tony.”
As far as I can tell the Board of Kent TV is made up entirely of appointees and indeed self appointees, does it sound right that such a group, unelected to a public funded board, should seek to discuss the tone of press release by one of our elected representative or perhaps write and correct them?
In fairness, I myself as regulars know, am a bit sensitised to what goes on at Kent TV, due entirely to KCC’s response to my earlier and continuing concerns.
