Why should he dress up?

I’m delighted to read that Jon Barry “wants to ride his bike to posh functions and wear a shirt and badge instead of the mayoral robe and chain” (February 12).

Jon has been a hard working councillor for many years and in his role as mayor will, as Coun Taylor says, “be a breath of fresh air”.

Jon cares passionately about his home/our home, ie: the planet that we all share, so why should he ditch his principles and be driven to functions in a car and why should he have to “dress up”?

It’s the person that counts not the attire.
