Comment on Last meeting of 11th Council descends into chaos by Janet Brown.

I have been demanding that the Alice Springs Town Council removes the video from its web site promoting Statehood. And this Video contains mostly John Rawnsley. And the end with Damian Ryan. I have always advocated against statehood. And today on the ABC the federal government has put it on ice and closed it down. Yea, finally commonsense has found its way to the top. Next let’s do an investigation into the NT Government, how much they have spent on Statehood. And also how much Alice Springs council spent on that video. And why a local government body involved themselves in statehood promotion.

Last meeting of 11th Council descends into chaos
Blah blah blah John. If it walks like a duck quacks like a duck. Then your telling us it could not possibly be a duck. Your explanation seems to lack factual information. Maybe after Erwin’s article councils secret. That tells us that the current council seems to find it impossible to tell the truth. Sssshhhhh. The truth is hidden in confidential. So how much would that be in total in the last four years your lot have squandered of ratepayers’ monies. Just guessing from what is out there and not hidden in confidential. It comes in over $3m. So rates have to rise to cover your incompetence and your worried and upset of some name calling.

Last meeting of 11th Council descends into chaos
Really John I am not concerned with your squabbles with others Steve and I are agree to disagree on many things but what we do agree with I not taking sides in petty arguments. To advocate for support on who is right or wrong is not only petty but insulting to those who do not participate in one up man ship. And next Steve has never enquirer about statehood. He does not support it but Steve is Steve and I am me. Two different people with different ideas and sometime ideologies. If am still at a loss how with 4 town councils Alice Springs was the only one to put together a video in support of statehood. No matter how you want to dress it up John by reference to statehood a piece of fiction. As it now is. You asserted your position to promote something that had once been rejected by territorians. And was not yet validated by the people of the territory whist advocating through council home page Alice Springs support for statehood. The residents were not asked if they support statehood you assumed they did or worse you decided what you wanted regardless of a people’s democrats voice. You assume to much John. And now for all to see statehood is closed down and again I ask make public how much of rate payers money did you spend on your promotion to promote your views.

Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Thank goodness for the NT Government finally standing by the project and the work will commence. This too and fro has dragged on for too long. I applaud the minister for her strong stand and commitment to Alice Springs and its future.

National Aboriginal gallery: Town Council’s action clear as mud
This entire talk fest is due to lack of understanding. The oval is not going to be built on. It is going to be enhanced as a public space for events and activities.
The gallery will go on the school site [which is] NT Government land.
The community needs to step up against this protest that continues to promote lies and misinformation to support their negativity, an attack by a few against the best interest of the town.
If this project was to encroach on the oval I would find it necessary to get more info and I may be a no voter.
The community’s voice should be heard by council elected members. Why are they being lead away from facts by negative protests based on deliberate misinformation to support their abuse of community interest?

Four councillors walk out of tonight’s Town Council meeting
A walk out for 10 minutes. That is what a parent demands for a child behaviouing petulantly.
Our elected members have shown their childish side with this behaviour.
Petulant behaviour left only adults in the chamber.
How can we the residents really see any maturity in our current council?

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
YD. The ground the old high school sits on is not your oval. The gallery is being built on that land. There is no building on the oval.
I am so concerned for the logic of the protesting few. The oval is not mine or yours.
It is council public property. For everyone.
The school is going and a new building being built. The gallery. Please think about your protest before yell to loudly. The school grounds are not the oval.

Indigenous gallery location done and dusted, says Lambley
I have spoken also to many people and they support Anzac as the location. As stated it is going on the land of the old high school.
A meeting at council and public consultation. It is government land. They do not have to consult with anyone.
When it comes to including the oval for open area then that is a need for MOU. Basic logic. The building is going on the government land. Now let’s all settle down and deal with facts.
