Dear Ge­orge

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

TO GE­ORGE Chris­tensen: I have writ­ten to you on a num­ber of is­sues.

They are: high un­em­ploy­ment; ex­tremely high youth un­em­ploy­ment; ex­tremely high sui­cide rates (I have been to two fu­ner­als of 19-year-olds in eight months); a very high num­ber of va­cant busi­ness premises here in Proser­pine, Air­lie Beach and Bowen; and the very high in­sur­ances pre­mi­ums which you have had years to do some­thing about.

Mr Chris­tensen, I am won­der­ing if you would like to de­bate th­ese is­sues in the pub­lic arena with any num­ber of lo­cal busi­ness peo­ple such as my­self.

Thomas Dunne

Proser­pine
