AT THE Proser­pine Cham­ber of Com­merce Meet the Can­di­dates fo­rum on Tues­day evening, I was ap­palled at the dis­gust­ing ver­bal ac­cu­sa­tions di­rected at a coun­cil can­di­date by Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent David Gill­man and sec­re­tary Tony Moscato, ac­cus­ing him of al­legedly dump­ing raw sewage at the coun­cil tip.

The ac­cu­sa­tion was dis­missed by Ro­gin Tay­lor as to­tally ab­surd and ut­terly ridicu­lous .

Af­ter the meet­ing, when I chal­lenged Mr Moscato about his gut­ter pol­i­tics re­marks, an al­ter­ca­tion fol­lowed and an all-out brawl was averted by my wife Sue, in­ter­ven­ing.

It is un­for­tu­nate that un­war­ranted and dis­re­spect­ful com­ments from a few in the au­di­ence, spoilt and dis­rupted an oth­er­wise in­for­ma­tive and well run meet­ing. Trevor Biggs Hamil­ton Plains
