ED­I­TOR’S COM­MENT

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE can­di­date fo­rums in the Daintree, Port Dou­glas and Moss­man have re­vealed a strong line up of cit­i­zens putting them­selves for what will un­doubt­edly be a dif­fi­cult task in the next cou­ple of years as the re­born shire gets back on its feet. The fo­rums have proven in­valu­able, not only for al­low­ing peo­ple to meet can­di­dates they have never pre­vi­ously met, but be­cause hear­ing them speak and an­swer ques­tions has had the re­mark­able ef­fect of rais­ing most of them in the es­ti­ma­tions of the au­di­ence – cer­tainly with me, and I have heard other peo­ple make the same com­ment.

It is heart­en­ing to dis­cover the tal­ent among the can­di­dates, and with it to dare to think that a strong and ef­fec­tive coun­cil has a good chance of emerg­ing from the poll.
