HAVING read with interest the recent letters to the editor concerning the upcoming local government elections, I was amazed to see the derogatory comments coming from some people who simply should know better and one must question their motivation in so doing.
Accusations against a member of the community who is not even standing nor supporting any political party but has expressed his concerns for the future of Airlie Beach, unfounded accusations against a mayoral candidate of derailing the Waterson Way issue because he “had lined up a sale for an associate” and that they were progressing the matter to the CCC.
Very scary words indeed with the sole intention of creating a mindset in the community that something dirty is going on.
To that group of people I simply say “put up or shut up”. Ross Newell President, Whitsunday Regional Residents’ Association
