Christ­mas wishes from pres­i­dent

Broome Advertiser - - OPINION - Harold Tracey Harold Tracey is the Shire of Broome pres­i­dent.

At the end of a very busy and pro­duc­tive year for Broome, I’d like to take this op­por­tu­nity to wish ev­ery­one a merry Christ­mas and a happy New Year.

We’ve ac­com­plished a great deal in 2018 as we work to­gether to de­velop our town for the ben­e­fit of all those who call Broome home.

It’s been re­ward­ing, but also hec­tic at times and I’ve ap­pre­ci­ated the sup­port of the com­mu­nity and my fel­low Shire of Broome coun­cil­lors and staff.

Along with many in our com­mu­nity I’m look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to take a break and spend time with fam­ily and friends over Christ­mas, and to come back re­freshed and recharged to tackle the ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties ahead of us in 2019.

If you’re head­ing out of town for Christ­mas I wish you a safe re­turn, and for those who are stay­ing at home en­joy Broome at this spe­cial time of the year.

And just fi­nally, please don’t drink and drive dur­ing the Christ­mas and new year pe­riod. This is a time to cel­e­brate but not to ex­cess, and not to mar this won­der­ful time of year with tragedy on our roads.

On be­half of Broome Shire coun­cil­lors and staff, I look for­ward to hav­ing our com­mu­nity back to­gether, happy and healthy in 2019.
