ROGIN Taylor has repeatedly used these pages and other avenues to misinform the community with incorrect information on a number of key issues, such as the airport expansion.
Why on earth he would be so against its development when he says he’s pro the Whitsundays going ahead is beyond me. But that’s the point. Rogin seems to conveniently forget his actions in his term of council, such as voting in favour of buying Havengrand to build a sports park, even when the community clearly stated they did not want one on that spot, and council paid way over the odds at $2.2 million.
When Rogin Taylor was on council last time, he used his vote as deputy mayor to support Mayor Brunker on many issues not in the best interests of his constituents.
People of Proserpine should think very carefully when voting in this council election.
If Rogin wins Proserpine, Brunker wins Collinsville and Peter Ramage retains Division 4 (no one is contesting Dave Clark in Bowen), then it will be the same “old” Council of 2008 – 2012, when a disproportionate amount of ratepayers’ money was questionably spent in the north of the shire. It will be four votes at the “top end” and only two – Airlie Beach and Cannonvale – protecting the interests of the southern part of the shire.
Oh, and if Andrew Willcox is elected mayor, he will join Brunker's team.
I know everyone is talking about unity and saying they have the interests of the whole shire at heart but I feel the councillors mentioned did not act in the best interests of the southern part of the shire when they sat on the 2008-2012 council.
We need to put someone in that cares about Proserpine and not someone who is going to ‘toady’ to Brunker, Ramage and Clark like he did last time. Anthony Moscato Airlie Beach
