Not a shred of truth in claim SOSA tried to disrupt forum
IN response to the letter published in Your Views 7/11/18, a single member of the Save Our Spit Alliance (SOSA) executive was invited by the organisers to attend the recent public forum regarding the Broadwater.
At no time were members of SOSA, or any other volunteer community group attending “outside the windows of the meeting chanting about a casino and cruise ship terminal” as reported in that letter.
The SOSA representative did not speak once during at the meeting, nor ask questions of the Gold Coast Waterways Authority staff in attendance.
SOSA is a volunteer community organisation of local residents that has been working diligently to provide sustainable outcomes for The Spit, Broadwater and surrounds by engaging respectfully with The Spit Master Plan team, the Gold Coast Waterways Authority, Gold Coast Water, and local councillors and MPs from both sides of parliament.
For this person, who did not attend the event, to state that members of SOSA tried to disrupt the meeting is completely untrue.
