Childers pe­ti­tions

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

THERE are two pe­ti­tions con­cern­ing the peo­ple of the Isis be­fore the Queens­land State Par­lia­ment. Th­ese are a pe­ti­tion re­quest­ing the re­in­state­ment of the fund­ing for a hy­drother­apy pool and a pe­ti­tion re­quest­ing the re­ten­tion of coun­cil di­vi­sions and di­vi­sional coun­cil­lors in the BRC area. Th­ese pe­ti­tions are spon­sored by Stephen Bennett MP and the Isis Dis­trict Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion. The hy­drother­apy pool pe­ti­tion is go­ing well. We held a well-at­tended protest march down Churchill St, with plenty of blue bal­loons and loud cho­rus­ing of “What do we want …?” Both the e-pe­ti­tion and pa­per pe­ti­tions are grow­ing well in num­ber. The pe­ti­tion sup­port­ing the re­ten­tion of di­vi­sional coun­cil­lors is not go­ing quite as well. I would urge all Isis res­i­dents to sign this pe­ti­tion, be­cause if the way the coun­cil is elected is changed we will no longer have one coun­cil­lor who speaks for the Isis. In­stead, we could find that there are eight coun­cil­lors, all of whom are from Bund­aberg city. I would like to thank Deb­bie and Trevor for al­low­ing us to have a ta­ble at the mar­kets this month. This pro­vided many peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to sign the pa­per pe­ti­tion forms. Please note that you do not have to look for peo­ple with pa­per pe­ti­tions to sign. Both pe­ti­tions can eas­ily be signed on­line. To do this, go to www.par­lia­ment.qld.gov.au/work-of-as­sem­bly/pe­ti­tions/e-pe­ti­tions and click Re­in­state fund­ing for Childers Hy­drother­apy Pool and Di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tion in Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil. Sign both pe­ti­tions. Th­ese are both very im­por­tant.
