Another tier to oversee councillors’ actions
WITH the regional council elections imminent, I have come up with an idea that may be beneficial to all the sitting members, aspirants and council bashers. What we need is another tier of local government, like a review committee, an upper house if you will, similar to the senate. This committee would oversee council decisions and cut or modify bad decisions and have the power to sin bin councillors who don’t step up. I have put much thought as to the make-up of this committee and here it is, though I invite readers to nominate their own team. My team is Bill Louden, Noel Bowman, Steve Bieger, Jim Carter and Dieter Moeckel. Bill and Noel representing the conservative view for Bargara, Steve for Burnett Heads, Jim for Elliott Heads and Dieter to fight for the Greens up there at Nim Bin, sorry I meant Gin Gin. The president of this committee is friendly Fredrick Arher, who is the epitome of diplomacy. You’ll notice Fred, I didn’t nominate any of the fairer sex to this committee, as you of all people would understand they just couldn’t cut it. Although I must be fair here Fred and remind you that an all-female committee of Olga, George, Pam Soper, Betty Lowis and Mary Walsh would be nearly as formidable. Just imagine a group start from that quartet.
Adrian Wone Give me a plan of action – a vision perhaps – for the next few years of your employment with us and then I will consider a vote for you.
