Dugald Saunders is sending birthday cards to "strangers".
Last week my husband received a birthday card from Dugald Saunders. (My husband is not turning 100).
Dugald Saunders has exclusive access, as an MP, to the Electoral Roll which contains names, addresses and dates of birth of all the voters in the Dubbo Electorate.
To use the birth dates for any purpose is an abuse of power and an invasion of privacy.
I could just throw the card in the bin and forget about it but I am so outraged that I want the people of the Dubbo electorate to know what Dugald Saunders is using tax payers' money for.
It's not just an ordinary cheap card.
The card was especially printed, my husband's name was printed inside with a message and ending with "Warmest regards Dugald and Karen Saunders".
Dugald Saunders you shouldn't draw your wife into your foolishness.
Plus there is the cost of the stickers with the address, the envelope and the postage, all paid for "using parliamentary entitlements" (as stated on the back of the card).
Money Dugald Saunders receives for "Parliamentary entitlements" is tax payers' money, "your money". This is a blatant misuse of tax payer's money.
Do you have something to say? We welcome your letters which may run in print and online.
