ARMCHAIR CRITICS: "I can only guess at reasons for her [Jo McRae] not being re-elected, and I certainly hope that those reasons are wrong," Keith Curry.

At times, many of us are `armchair councillors’, who criticise some of the decisions made by our elected Councillors.

However, people who have some understanding of the workload of our councillors, know just how demanding their role can be.

I suspect that at times, it can be a thankless job - even for those Councillors who get their photo in the Central Western Daily every second day of the week.

Like most residents, I'd like to see more women elected to Orange City Council, and I certainly take my hat off to those residents who serve many years on Council.

Like many residents, I was disappointed to read that Cr. McRae was not re-elected as deputy mayor.

I can only guess at reasons for her not being re-elected, and I certainly hope that those reasons are wrong.
