Lowles went above and be­yond in role

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

I RE­SPOND to the ar­ti­cle in The Stan­dard, Au­gust 24: “Lowles to pass on the ba­ton”.

Hats off to Char­lie Lowles, La­bor coun­cil­lor for ward five and six times the mayor of Black­town.

I re­mem­ber Cr Lowles and Danny Mackin, now de­ceased, ap­pear­ing in The Stan­dard al­most on a weekly ba­sis in their re­solve to make Mt Druitt a bet­ter place.

But more than that, I re­mem­ber Char­lie on the front page of The

Stan­dard go­ing be­yond the do­main of his nor­mal du­ties and stand­ing up for Mt Druitt Hospital from los­ing its emer­gency surgery when other lo­cal politi­cians sat on their hands.

When, and if, our hospital gets its emer­gency surgery back we can say Char­lie Lowles had a hand in it and recog­ni­tion where it is due.
