Elec­tion a busy week­end

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon Reporter jodie.dixon@isistc­news.com.au

WHAT a mas­sive week­end across the re­gion.

Firstly con­grat­u­la­tions to all the can­di­dates of Divi­sion 2 and may­oral can­di­dates Troy Ma­dle and Elise Cot­tam for all their ef­forts to be elected.

You have all worked hard and played a fair cam­paign.

I would like to wish you all the best as the count is cur­rently still in full swing. It’s not over un­til the last vote is counted.

Sadly this week news had spread of the pass­ing of one of Childers’ much loved char­ac­ters, Mike “Cookie” Cook.

I would like to send my con­do­lences to the Cook fam­ily. Chris, I am sorry to hear of the pass­ing of the love of your life and the en­tire com­mu­nity is with you in this time of sad­ness. I wish you all well.

This week was once again busy for me.

Well done to Rhy Baker on her award, you do a great job for the com­mu­nity and I want to say thank you for ev­ery­thing you do for the cadets in our re­gion, keep up the great work.

Tues­day morn­ing the Childers branch of the APSL or­gan­ised a guest speaker, Con­sta­ble Adrian Smith to ad­dress the 50-strong crowds on per­sonal and on­line safety for se­niors.

It was eye open­ing and we all should be more aware on scams and how to pro­tect our­selves.

An­other per­son worth con­grat­u­lat­ing is John Cot­tam on his ap­point­ment as the Childers SES lo­cal con­troller, well done.

As a mem­ber of the Gin Gin SES I want to per­son­ally thank you for all the sup­port you and your team have given to us over the years. I wish you all the best and I know you will con­tinue the great work and high stan­dards you set.

Let us know at Town and Coun­try your com­ing events. Stay safe Childers.

It’s not over un­til the last vote is counted.
