It’s dated two weeks from now.
The letter says thank you to the 2800 people who take part in Newcastle Voice‘s surveys.
*adds up the cost of the stamps.
*wonders why an email wasn’t sent instead.
These surveys were started by Lindy Hyam, I believe, the former GM who resigned at the time the ABC did an investigation into some aspects of the Council. Sorry, it was to take up a highly paid position with a US company. No, sorry again, she took up a job with Singleton Council.
Anyway, we all feel misty-eyed about the contribution she made to Newcastle. Not.
The surveys tick a box for Community Engagement. The questions often feel like ‘do you like us a lot or do you like us heaps?’
People do these surveys to help or to feel engaged or empowered or informed or because they’re bored.
The letter says it contains a small token of thanks for taking part.
We don’t need a gift.
Which is fortunate because the small token was missing.
Are they giving us the finger again? Home
