Comment on How can we all be winners? by Janet Brown.

All these nominations to represent our town. An observation walk for voters. Go and note all election materials and observe those who not only want to represent our town but support businesses of this town. I know that Damian Ryan has all his electioneering material done in Adelaide. No supporting local businesses by this mayoral candidate. I must admit I am going to put last every nomination that went interstate or to Darwin for their electoral campaign material. This election voters need to consider the facts of the respect of candidates to our electorate. Support those who support our town. Our businesses. And put last those who refuse to support our home town.
ED – The Alice Springs News Online put Ms Brown’s comment to Mayor Damien Ryan for response. He said all printed material for his campaign was produced in Alice Springs, namely by his camera shop (some posters) and Colemans Printing (leaflets). The exception were “plasticised” (weather resistant) posters which Colemans could not supply. These were obtained from an Adelaide based company by a supporter Mr Ryan declined to name.

The millions and the misery
Jen, how many failed programs have you been employed with?
This is not about giving young people a voice this is about giving young people a safe space.
With people who care about their safety. Not a government program that employees robots who perform for the wages.
This project is about people supporting kids and ensuring their safety. Relax. Revive and not be throw on the street after the place closes.
Empathy and real compassion will be the base of volunteers.
Not a government position in a high needs spot. People who care. That is why we will succeed.


The millions and the misery
The perfect location.


Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
I really am not surprised by the responses by people who have been part of these failed programs.
And still are part of them. You all yell loudly the amount of agencies who are doing something.
Yet our you problems continue. These places are all individual pieces of the puzzle. Never to join up and offer real security and safety. Peace meal titbits.
What we are dissucissing is a community centre that is open and operating 24/7. Were kids have a place. The current supports while well meaning miss the big picture. Kids want security and safety. Couch surfing is not what I would call safety.
This will be a place to call into to relax. Get a feed and relax. Similar to a home environment one that will give opportunities to kids to make life choices on their voice.
I watched for the first time last night blind side. What a story. A story to reinforce the need for a place and people to care for our kids.
Those people who want to pat themselves on the back and protect themselves is the real shame of failing our kids.
We are taking a stand to provide safety and security to these kids. And you want to knock us for standing up for these kids. Really. I really do not care about your failures. I care about the kids.


Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
We need to open asap. We need showers, toilets, kitchen open areas. All this is in the Memo.
The Memo is the only place in town. I ask Donna to please support this. This is for our kids.
We hope to raise enough money to build a purpose centre. Right now we need the Memo club for this project to go ahead. For the sake of our local kids and the community.
Donna, we ask that you find time to talk to Steve and Congress work with us for the sake of our town. And their future. Please.
