FEAR MON­GER­ING

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

It is ex­tremely im­por­tant in the forth­com­ing Lo­cal Govern­ment elec­tions that the Mayor and Coun­cil­lors who are sworn in to rep­re­sent us are of a very high cal­i­bre. They must be well re­spected, hon­est, be vi­sion­ary and go the ex­tra mile for the well­be­ing of the peo­ple and shire at large.

The can­di­dates that I will not be vot­ing for are those that have their names em­bla­zoned on that dis­gust­ing flash­ing elec­tronic political sign in Moss­man.

This sig­nal creates un­war­ranted un­cer­tainty and neg­a­tiv­ity among the more vul­ner­a­ble of our so­ci­ety. We de­serve bet­ter than this.

Neville St. John-Wood, For­est Creek

busi­ness re­la­tion­ship could be es­tab­lished to gen­er­ate sales, new shire ex­po­sure and most im­por­tantly profit. The ben­e­fits and pro­mo­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties are end­less.

We need lead­ers who have busi­ness acu­men, imag­i­na­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence in run­ning a ma­jor busi­ness. Cur­rently we have too many bu­reau­crats; one be­ing the Mayor. What we DON’T NEED are can­di­dates elected with lim­ited to no for­mal education and busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence. Pop­u­lar com­mu­nity vol­un­teers and re­tirees just doesn’t cut it.

Richard Laven­der, Oak Beach
