Smart to do it online

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

RE: “Trek for trash’s big tag,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, Septem­ber 23).

I un­der­stand of­fer­ing up your per­sonal time is a big sac­ri­fice for those who choose to serve their com­mu­ni­ties in public of­fice. It in­ter­feres with fam­ily life and, for many, their ca­reers/busi­nesses.

All re­search and meet­ings can be con­ducted online now. The in­ter­net is what the rest of us use for ex­chang­ing ideas and we, the rate pay­ers, should not be ex­pected to pay for re­search field trips for coun­cil work­ers or vol­un­teers out­side NSW.

Un­less we are ex­chang­ing some­thing phys­i­cal and tan­gi­ble, in­for­ma­tion can be shared via the web.

It’s the in­tel­li­gent, voter-friendly op­tion. FIONA SCULLY,
