Gate­way not greed­way

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LETTERS -

I’M GLAD the scare­mon­ger­ing didn’t work (boo) and we all have our towns back away from big cities. The whole idea was ab­surd to start with and so it proved in many many ways. All we need now is new young mayor and a coun­cil open to fresh ideas from lo­cal in­put and not from big rich one-eyed mon­sters who spoiled Port - and want to con­crete ev­ery­thing. We have been dis­cov­ered as a spe­cial place and area and should build on praises by call­ing Moss­man ‘‘The Gate­way to the Dain­tree’’, which means that a bus ser­vice is so badly needed for lo­cals and tourists is run at lo­cal prices, not for big prof­its. Ev­ery vis­i­tor I’ve spo­ken to can­not be­lieve there’s nowhere up­dated or easy to park their big vans so that they can hop on a bus to any­where and travel like a lo­cal, a ser­vice pro­vided in most third world coun­tries. May we hope that item is on some­one’s list if they really care. We have been ne­glected long enough.
