In the long term

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Ross Plow­man Air­lie Beach work for a full four years.

We have some good, tough, bat­tle hard­ened coun­cil­lors and some who need to think harder on con­struc­tive co­op­er­a­tion.

All com­mu­nity groups need to work to­gether for the best out­comes for all res­i­dents.

We are a dy­namic, in­tel­li­gent and pro­gres­sive com­mu­nity need­ing equally tough, in­tel­li­gent, like-minded and co­op­er­a­tive coun­cil­lors.

Let's see your metal, but be pre­pared for tough crit­i­cism if we feel you need it, as the Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion watches un­ceas­ingly.

OUR mayor and coun­cil are try­ing hard to rep­re­sent the facts and var­i­ous view­points openly and hon­estly.

Ev­ery­thing open to pub­lic de­bate is on the floor, has been on the re­vi­talised coun­cil web­site for ages and has been pub­li­cised in our lo­cal me­dia with the added help of some co­op­er­a­tive and hard work­ing coun­cil­lors.

Prospec­tive and con­tin­u­ing coun­cil­lors and po­ten­tial al­ter­na­tive may­ors need to se­ri­ously con­sider the need for com­pe­tent and re­spon­si­ble plan­ning, de­vel­op­ment and jobs first, while preserving the aes­thetic in­tegrity of our whole com­mu­nity and not self­ishly grab­bing ev­ery short-term political ad­van­tage.

Coun­cil is hard and tough
