Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I AT­TENDED the Meet the Can­di­dates fo­rum for our com­ing elec­tion, which was con­ducted by our Proser­pine Cham­ber of Com­merce on Tues­day and I must con­grat­u­late them on a well or­gan­ised evening.

How­ever, it was marred by one woman who con­tin­u­ally caused ruc­tions with loud, rude com­ments.

Two men from the Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion then at­tempted to dis­credit one can­di­date by mak­ing slan­der­ous com­ments about the can­di­date, com­ments which were ob­vi­ous to ev­ery­one as bla­tant lies.

I asked my­self – why do peo­ple have to stoop to such a low level in an at­tempt to gain votes for their pals.

Well their pals in­stantly lost my votes, as I al­ways pro­fess “whether you like it or not, you will be judged by the peo­ple you as­so­ciate with”.

Just when we thought the Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion couldn’t have stooped any lower with their spite­ful state­ments, they did.

We wit­nessed the Air­lie Beach group come out with some atro­cious ac­cu­sa­tions at the fo­rum.

I sug­gest the next time they want to in­vade Proser­pine with their trashy com­ments, don’t bother.

We don’t want you here. Desni Wilkins Proser­pine
