Full of sur­prises

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

WHY is it that the com­mu­nity is never given the whole truth?

The may­oral up­date at the meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 28, 2015, records “The Mayor and the Act­ing CEO at­tended the In­ter­na­tional Tourism Con­fer­ence” in China but sur­pris­ingly she for­got, con­ve­niently, to men­tion that the CEO Mr Waters was also in China as was Mr Wang.

They were happy snapped to­gether some­where in China.

Now our un­der­stand­ing is that Mr Waters was sup­pos­edly com­mit­ting him­self fully to the pro­posed in­ter­na­tional air­port project, so why was he there and fur­ther­more were coun­cil­lors made aware of this and who ap­proved the as­so­ci­ated ex­penses?

And then we have that re­cent photo of Mayor Whit­ney, the Act­ing CEO and again, Mr Wang en­joy­ing the sur­rounds of a cafe in Air­lie Beach and of course we can as­sume there was no dis­cus­sions con­cern­ing the pro­posed Chi­na­town con­cept or of the in­ter­na­tional air­port.

Just old friends en­joy­ing each other’s com­pany.

And oh, we should men­tion that Mayor Whit­ney told us at a re­cent coun­cil meet­ing that she has never met pri­vately with Mr Wang.

The world is full of sur­prises, isn’t it?
