Mayor cleared

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

ANY­ONE could have in­formed Dr Roger Down of the fu­til­ity of re­port­ing our cur­rent mayor to the CCC.

Jen­nifer Whit­ney is a rare crea­ture in pol­i­tics. She is not only hon­est, she is con­cerned that she projects an im­age of hon­esty, thus her stance on “the per­ceived con­flict of in­ter­est”.

This way of think­ing was so for­eign to Dr Down that the only con­clu­sion he could draw was that she must be cor­rupt.

How­ever I don’t think for a mo­ment that Dr Down re­ally thought that our mayor was cor­rupt, as he claimed in the last

Whit­sun­day Times “I am de­lighted we suc­ceeded in main­tain­ing the sta­tus quo … and I know who I am vot­ing for.”

Yes Dr Down, we know who you are vot­ing for and we have known that ever since you lodged your spu­ri­ous claim with the CCC.

This is play­ing pol­i­tics and wast­ing govern­ment re­sources.

Both are to be de­plored by the com­mu­nity. John Hill Shute Haven
