No divi­sions

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I’VE been to two Meet the Can­di­dates Meet­ings for the lo­cal elec­tions.

At each of those meet­ings they all say they want a co­he­sive coun­cil.

In the Bowen me­dia a few weeks ago one can­di­date stated and I quote “Whit­ney and the three stooges from the south”.

If it wasn’t so se­ri­ous it would be funny.

I think it is im­pos­si­ble to have a united coun­cil as it stands.

The only way to solve the “them and us” is to elim­i­nate divi­sions, sim­i­lar to the Mackay Re­gional Coun­cil.

This would make all coun­cil­lors re­spon­si­ble for the whole re­gion not just their own lit­tle patch. Alan Dufty Proser­pine
