Ques­tion­able pol­i­tics

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

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
