Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

ON Fri­day, March 10, lo­cal artists Art x 5 launched their first arts ex­hi­bi­tion at the Hamil­ton Hill Memo­rial Hall with the Mayor, Lo­gan Howlett, in­vited to open the ex­hi­bi­tion.

A few days prior to the ex­hi­bi­tion Mayor Howlett made con­tact to say he was un­well and not sure if he would be able to at­tend.

Fri­day evening came and an ob­vi­ously un­well Mayor ac­com­pa­nied by his wife ar­rived to launch the ex­hi­bi­tion and made a brief but wel­come speech.

We live in a time when we of­ten ques­tion and doubt the ef­fi­cacy of our ap­pointed gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives and are quick to com­plain but slow to praise; but in Mayor Lo­gan Howlett the City of Cock­burn got a good one.

The Art x 5 group would like to ex­press its' sin­cere thanks to the mayor for his sup­port of the arts and lo­cal artist; for launch­ing the Art x 5 ex­hi­bi­tion and for mak­ing his civic re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as Mayor a pri­or­ity above all else. MATT and ANN GAR­RITY, Coogee.
