Political prom­ise?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS | HEALTH AND BEAUTY -

WIL­SON Beach may not be the navel of the Whit­sun­days, but it is an in­te­gral part on elec­tion day.

Vis­i­tors are charmed by its beauty and well kept wa­ter­front, the one sour spot be­ing of course, its di­lap­i­dated apol­ogy for a boat ramp.

Our present mayor and mayor elect in the forth­com­ing elec­tions, along with the well known coun­cil­lor, John ‘Sarge’ Collins, who will be stand­ing for this divi­sion, agree that some­thing should be done, but their hands have been tied up till now, be­cause of bu­reau­cratic red tape, and we all know how an­noy­ing that can be.

I have now got a heavy­weight pre­pared to take up the war club on our be­half.

Ja­son Costi­gan, our well known state mem­ber said, yes, he had heard of its di­lap­i­dated and po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous state and de­spite a heavy work load would make it his busi­ness to in­spect and as­sess the ramp, pos­si­bly be­fore Easter.

He is aware that the up river ramp is no sub­sti­tute for larger boats that wish to fish out in the bay or travel to is­lands fur­ther out.

I’m sure Ja­son will push hard be­cause as we all know no politi­cian likes to break a prom­ise and a job well done is al­ways re­mem­bered by the vot­ing pub­lic. John Tyree Wil­son Beach
