Rift runs deep

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

SHOULD any­one doubt a rift ex­ists in this shire, won­der no longer.

Some pur­port­ing to rep­re­sent the in­ter­ests of res­i­dents of the whole shire un­der the ban­ner of Whit­sun­day Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion dur­ing the Q&A evening in Proser­pine did show their true colours.

Those present will have seen there was a team ef­fort to gang up on a can­di­date for the com­ing lo­cal govern­ment elec­tion.

I would urge those who were wit­ness to re­lay their ac­count of the evening and the ac­cu­sa­tions aimed to dis­credit a can­di­date ob­vi­ously seen as a threat to their lob­by­ing ef­forts.

This duo’s ac­tions and the un­savoury re­marks made by the lady present can only have been harm­ful to their cause.

Since this evening I have been in­spired to re­main a sup­porter of Ro­gin Tay­lor and even more so, along with many other con­cerned res­i­dents. Neil Wor­thing­ton Proser­pine
