Why could Mayor not have made the effort for prize giving?

EDITOR – I would like to congratulate Brian Hunter (Rasen Mail, May 2) for being awarded the 2012 Diana Princess of Wales Community Award, for serving our community so well for 32 years.

He looked extremely smart in his uniform as Special Constable. Unlike our Mayor, Ken Bridger, who felt the occasion only required him to throw his chain of office over his gardening clothes.

How very ill mannered of him. What price the dignity of the office?
