Unpredictable, unaligned and undaunted: Cr Eli Melky
Steve, I understand perfectly the function of a Council and the elected members. What I am against is the coalition due to political allegiance. I talk to elected members on issues dear to me. I also take notice to those who answer my call by emails, phone or media : I sent two phone messages to one who never returned my call; I asked a question here to an aspirant Councillor who ignored me; Eli always do. I had and meeting with our Mayor and I talk to you on the phone.
I choose to whom I address according to the facts of the day, I do not need to agree all time. I am sorry that your personal life takes you away from us and I wish you all the best for you and your family.

Collaboration and teamwork (no stabbing in the back between councillors).

Attendance and dependability, quality and accuracy of work.
No attendance to meetings only with a very valid reason.
