Democ­racy

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

COUN­CIL has not sold 49 % of our air­port.

Why would any­one keep say­ing that?

There is a vast dif­fer­ence be­tween di­vi­sive mis­in­for­ma­tion as prop­a­gated by a few with a per­sonal axe to grind and the solid facts.

The air­port ex­ten­sions are all about more se­cure, bet­ter paid jobs and sup­port for busi­nesses in ev­ery work sec­tor through­out the Whit­sun­days.

The air­port de­vel­op­ment de­serves ev­ery­body's pos­i­tive en­cour­age­ment.

We are never go­ing to give away con­trol over our "Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity-owned air­port", one of our great­est as­sets, as you well know.

We are blessed with our coun­cil-owned com­mer­cial air­port, with the po­ten­tial to grow and unite our com­mu­nity.

Those who choose to dis­rupt that dam­age ev­ery ratepayer and ev­ery con­tin­u­ing and po­ten­tial new job in the re­gion.

Coun­cil­lors who con­struc­tively co­op­er­ate and pos­i­tively help each other to de­velop whole shire out­comes should be en­cour­aged and praised and not un­de­servedly un­der­mined.

We all need jobs, se­cu­rity and a chance to im­prove our­selves, but let's do it openly and with hon­esty.

It's called "democ­racy", and it works the best. An­thony Moscato Man­dalay
