SAME SEX MAR­RIAGE: COUNCIL SHOULD PULL ITS HEAD IN

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

I am an­gry. How dare this council de­cide for me that I will sup­port same sex mar­riage. I have no prob­lem with council run­ning the shire, roads, rub­bish etc to make sure this shire is run ef­fi­ciently and we pay hand­somely for the priv­i­lege.

But and the big BUT is lay off so­cial is­sues – they are none of your busi­ness and you are not en­ti­tled to speak for the ratepay­ers of the shire.

I don’t care if you sup­port it or not, I will make my de­ci­sion in the vote, all you are do­ing is mak­ing sure peo­ple know that you are bi­ased. Council does not have a vote.

This Let­ter has noth­ing to do with the is­sue but council’s pre­sump­tion that we need its ap­proval.

Pull your head in.

Sue En­twistle, Port Dou­glas
