People power

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

NOT since Ro­gin Tay­lor ral­lied the com­mu­nity to march and protest against the sale of the Proser­pine Air­port in 2007 have we seen such com­mu­nity unity and re­sent­ment at the sug­gested clos­ing of the Coun­cil of­fice in Bowen. Con­grat­u­la­tions Cr Dave Clark for stand­ing up, fight­ing for your ratepay­ers by pro­mot­ing a protest to save the Bowen Coun­cil of­fice. bWe know that people power and com­mu­nity unity will win at the end of the day. Just won­dered how the com­mu­nity would feel if the Mayor wanted to close the Proser­pine of­fice and move the staff to Bowen? Phil Ho­ran AIR­LIE BEACH
