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
