When you thought you had seen ev­ery­thing

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

FIRSTLY thank you to all the can­di­dates who stood for the lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions and con­grat­u­la­tions to those who will shortly be elected.

You are now charged with unit­ing this won­der­ful re­gion and in it­self, that is go­ing to be a tough slog.

Re­mem­ber the old Acro­nym “T-ogether E-very­one A-chieves M-ore”.

Put the past in the past and leave it where it be­longs.

But just on a clos­ing note on how di­vi­sive coun­cil’s op­er­a­tions were, vot­ers in the south­ern part of the re­gion were given, on a de­ci­sion made by Coun­cil Ex­ec­u­tive, two weeks of pre-polling yet Collinsville and Bowen were only al­lo­cated one week.

Let’s look for­ward to the pros­per­ous fu­ture this new Coun­cil can bring us.
