Let the vot­ers de­cide

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

IN RE­PLY to the let­ters to the editor in the Times and Guardian last week from Tony Moscato, we saw a des­per­ate at­tempt to dis­credit me and other can­di­dates.

I have to say, your state­ment and ac­cu­sa­tions have no foun­da­tion or cred­i­bil­ity at all.

On the other hand it was your gut­ter pol­i­tics that stood out at the Proser­pine Cham­ber of Com­merce Q&A fo­rum and that an­gered so many peo­ple.

I noted you had to make a run for your car af­ter the meet­ing fol­low­ing the heated al­ter­ca­tion in the foyer of the en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre.

Mr Moscato, it’s easy to make up any num­ber of false or worth­less ac­cu­sa­tions with your Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent David Gill­man but when you have to show even the re­motest shred of proof or evi- dence about what you have been ac­cus­ing many of the can­di­dates of, it be­comes ap­par­ent all you have is what you and your group “dreamed up” with ab­so­lutely noth­ing to back up or sup­port any­thing you said.

I am sure res­i­dents are smart enough to see you are at­tempt­ing to ma­nip­u­late can­di­dates and dis­rupt this coun­cil elec­tion with a ma­li­cious smear cam­paign to pro­tect your cho­sen few.

It would be so much bet­ter for all con­cerned if you al­low the elec­tions to pro­ceed with­out your un­wanted out­side in­ter­fer­ence, and just let the vot­ers de­cide on an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date. Ro­gin Tay­lor Con­way
