As this blog has mentioned on many occasions, most Conservative Councillors are decent and polite people, who don't wander the Borough looking to break peoples bones and insult them. Most don't send rude emails. In fact, most of them are quite nice if you bump into them in waitrose Car Park, Cafe Buzz or on Mill Hill Broadway. Most of them will be perfectly civil, if you send them an email, and most will send you a polite email if you get a fact wrong or need a clarification.
So itw as was that we have just received a clarification from Councillor Sury Khatri, regarding the cancellation of the Councillors surgery in Mill Hill on Saturday. The Barnet Eye stated that the surgery was cancelled due to the BAPS delegation attending. Councillor Khatri, who is a decent chap, emailed me to correct this. It was due to a clash of appointments for both himself and Councillor John Hart.
Here is the email, apologies to Cllr's Hart and Khatri for posting incorrect information. I hope this clears the matter up
Just catching up with events
I noted that there was to be a BAPS delegation to see us at our Councillor Surgery last Saturday and you reported that because of this we had cancelled it.
My reason for writing to you is that this is incorrect and wish to clear up any misunderstanding.
My sincere apologies as if we had known prior I would have informed that we would not be there.
As both Cllr John Hart and I had previous commitments for Saturday 22nd and neither one could be present I informed the Library of this on the previous Saturday 15th (after I finished my Councillor Surgery) and to put a note to this effect that we would not be holding a Councillor Surgery on Saturday 22nd - for your information message sent on Tuesday 18th to Mill Hill Librarian below
APOLOGIES FOR SHORT NOTICE
THIS TO ADVISE YOU THAT, DUE TO OTHER COMMITMENTS, Cllrs KHATRI & HART WILL NOT BE HOLDING THE COUNCILLOR SURGERY THIS SATURDAY 22nd SEPTEMBER 2012.
PLEASE WOULD YOU PUT A NOTE TO THIS EFFECT AND ADVISE / APOLOGISE ON OUR BEHALF TO ANYONE WHO COMES TO SEE US AND THAT TO CONTACT US BY EMAIL / TEL
I DID ADVISE THE LIBRARIAN LAST SATURDAY OF THIS
Cllr Sury N Khatri
