Christchurch Press Letter to Editor
In a few words section September 18th
Is it little wonder that I am a disillusioned constituent and bewildered father of four children when it is deemed normal to have a tranny granny sitting behind a High Court bench at the same time a Law Commissioner proclaims that our law books are in state of chaos (Sept 13)?
Reply - letter titled; Just what I am
Peter Burns seems to questioning how a tranny granny could end up sitting behind a High Court bench (Sept 18). He goes on to tell us he is a father of four and disillusioned. He then seems to try to link a law commissioner’s proclamation that our law books are in a state of chaos to the same event.
As the tranny concerned, I can tell Peter Burns that some of the reasons I was picked to sit on the tribunal involved in that High Court case were my board life experience, as well as, many years of community service.
That includes fostering around 70 children over 23 years, as well, as being and elected councillor. In 1998 I was made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
Being a tranny had no bearing on any of my achievements – it’s just what I am, something I have never let interfere with my goals of being the best person I can.
