Not a shred of truth in claim SOSA tried to dis­rupt fo­rum

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

IN re­sponse to the let­ter pub­lished in Your Views 7/11/18, a sin­gle mem­ber of the Save Our Spit Al­liance (SOSA) ex­ec­u­tive was in­vited by the or­gan­is­ers to at­tend the re­cent pub­lic fo­rum re­gard­ing the Broad­wa­ter.

At no time were mem­bers of SOSA, or any other vol­un­teer com­mu­nity group at­tend­ing “out­side the win­dows of the meet­ing chant­ing about a casino and cruise ship ter­mi­nal” as re­ported in that let­ter.

The SOSA rep­re­sen­ta­tive did not speak once dur­ing at the meet­ing, nor ask ques­tions of the Gold Coast Wa­ter­ways Author­ity staff in at­ten­dance.

SOSA is a vol­un­teer com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion of lo­cal res­i­dents that has been work­ing dili­gently to pro­vide sus­tain­able out­comes for The Spit, Broad­wa­ter and sur­rounds by en­gag­ing re­spect­fully with The Spit Mas­ter Plan team, the Gold Coast Wa­ter­ways Author­ity, Gold Coast Wa­ter, and lo­cal coun­cil­lors and MPs from both sides of par­lia­ment.

For this per­son, who did not at­tend the event, to state that mem­bers of SOSA tried to dis­rupt the meet­ing is com­pletely un­true.
