Is DA Ward 60 Councillor Mark Kleinscmidt the “action man” he claims to be?

On Wednesday the 27th of July 2016,a week before our local government elections,residents were invited to a public meeting at the Vera Home that falls within the boundaries of Ward 60 in Cape Town’s plush area of Rondebosch East.Residents had the opportunity to question the various candidates put forward by the political parties contesting the ward.Amongst the guest speakers were now incumbent DA ward councillor Mark Kleinscmidt.
While being questioned about his suitability as ward councillor,Mr Kleinshmidt,then a PR councillor for the DA in Subcouncil 12,claimed amongst many other claims that he was an “action man”.Today (20 August 2016),the erstwhile DA councillor had an opportunity to prove his prowess as an “action man”,instead he proved to be a toothless tiger.

Social media has been awash with photos of a vehicle that plunged into a pothole in Burwood Road, which falls within Ward 60,about 3 metres wide.As concerned residents gathered around the hole to assist the elderly man and his grandson who were in the vehicle,it seemed the entertaining Mr Kleinschmidt decided to not wear his “action man” cape on this beautiful day in the Mother City.According to a resident,he called the City this morning,but was not issued with a reference number.

Is this the kind of “action” we can expect from the entertaining Mr Kleinschmidt for the next 5 years.Incidentally Mr Kleinschmidt was better known as an entertaining MC and radio dj before he decide to become an “action man” for the DA.
I hope the residents of ward 60 will see better “action” from the councillor in the future.
