Keep it clean

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

IS THE Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion (WRA) re­ally se­ri­ous that six or seven men sit­ting around a ta­ble is go­ing to de­cide and then dic­tate to us who we should or shouldn’t vote for in the up­com­ing coun­cil elec­tions?

I am ap­palled and dis­gusted at the way groups and in­di­vid­u­als stabbed good can­di­dates in the back at the last elec­tion and, un­for­tu­nately, it seems we are about to ex­pe­ri­ence the same again.

In­stead of try­ing to de­stroy can­di­dates who have put up their hands to be elected as coun­cil­lors be­cause they feel they can do some good for the com­mu­nity, why don’t those peo­ple who have so much hate and anger and are in­tent on dis­rupt­ing the elec­tion process, put them­selves up for elec­tion, or are they afraid the only vote they may get will be their own

Let’s try and keep this a clean cam­paign and let the coun­cil and may­oral can­di­dates present their case to the com­mu­nity with­out out­side in­ter­fer­ence. Chris Day Can­non­vale
