Comment on Ryan re-elected Mayor, Brown heads councillor line-up by David Chewings.

Welcome to the winners on the 12th Alice Springs Town council.
It is a reflection of Alice’s diverse political views but it must be said that women and indigenous people are poorly represented.
Alice Springs has just been through a fairly divisive mayoral campaign.
How do you stop those divisions from polarising the town all the way from here to the next election?
Start from day one to listen to those contributors of this forum who know more than I on important matters like social cohesion and engagement.
I refer particularly to those like Alex Nelson, Matthew Campbell, John Reid and Russell Guy.
Good luck.

They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.

This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.


Water – who is advising whom on what?
This is a commendable report Erwin. David Chewings.
