Let us in

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

WHEN Mayor Whit­ney was first elected she seemed to fos­ter an open form of do­ing busi­ness.

She now likes to do things be­hind closed doors.

While she may think this okay, many of her ratepay­ers think oth­er­wise.

If you have noth­ing to hide let us all in on the go­ings on.

She has now agreed to lis­ten to sub­mis­sions from var­i­ous groups.

While this is a step in the right di­rec­tion, why can she not have an open meet­ing when all and sundry can have a say?

Or does she not get on with all and sundry?

Re­mem­ber all and sundry voted for you and they can vote you out again.

Suck­ing up to big busi­ness and do­ing what they want is not what we mere min­nows want.

Most ratepay­ers came to Air­lie Beach for its vil­lage at­mos­phere.

We do not want the place to be­come an­other Gold Coast.
