Coun­cil gave a new per­spec­tive

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters -

I am hon­oured and priv­i­leged to have served on the coun­cil at such a great time in its his­tory.

What­ever you may think of the Shire of Au­gusta-Mar­garet River, I can tell you I prob­a­bly thought far worse four years ago.

What I know now is quite dif­fer­ent, gained by tak­ing the time to un­der­stand the role of the coun­cil and work­ing closely with the di­rec­tors and chief ex­ec­u­tive.

One of the big­gest things was dis­cov­er­ing how leg­is­la­tion from State and Fed­eral Govern­ment of­ten does not al­low for out­comes our com­mu­nity hopes for.

I would re­ally like to ac­knowl­edge Gary Ever­shed and Cr Ian Earl for their strong lead­er­ship. Both stand firm on their de­ci­sions and sup­port and en­gage with the com­mu­nity 100 per cent.

While I am step­ping into some greener pas­tures for now, I will be keep­ing a watch on the coun­cil and stay in­formed.

We must keep coun­cil­lors on track and fo­cused on the core role of the coun­cil, en­sur­ing they do not get side­tracked, or else we may find our rates in­creas­ing and we will plunge back to darker times.

Thank you once again and for all the calls and mes­sages of sup­port this week. Kylie Ken­naugh, Mar­garet River
