A cor­rec­tion, and con­fir­ma­tion, of lo­cal hous­ing con­di­tion

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

IN last week’s edi­tion of the Mans­field Courier, in an ar­ti­cle re­lated to the present chal­lenges fac­ing Mans­field’s home­less, the pa­per mis­quoted Mans­field Shire coun­cil­lor Paul Sladdin.

In the Oc­to­ber 25 ar­ti­cle, ‘Lo­cal hous­ing defies Mans­field’s home­less’,

the Courier quoted Cr Sladdin at Oc­to­ber’s coun­cil meet­ing say­ing, “we do not have any price­less ac­com­mo­da­tion in Mans­field, and that’s the is­sue”.

The cor­rect quote from Cr Sladdin was in fact, “we do not have any *cri­sis* ac­com­mo­da­tion in Mans­field, and that’s the is­sue”.

Cr Sladdin went on to tell the Courier that “there is no cri­sis hous­ing in Mans­field is a sig­nif­i­cant is­sue, in ad­di­tion to other lack of af­ford­able hous­ing”.

SHIRE LACK­ING: Ac­cord­ing to Mans­field Shire coun­cil­lor Paul Sladdin, Mans­field’s lack of cri­sis house is “a sig­nif­i­cant is­sue”.
