Comment on Ryan re-elected Mayor, Brown heads councillor line-up by Melanie Ross.

Janet you are truly amazing. In the same breath you talk about social inclusion you tell people with views different from your own they don’t count and aren’t welcome. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.
Also, Chansey Paech is a local indigenous man. I agree Dave that this doesn’t reflect the make up of our town, but council has never reflected our social diversity.

Diversity loses in ballot for Deputy Mayor
The Alice Springs Town Council is just become a defacto branch of the CLP.
The CLP bloc just vote how they are told.
What a disappointment you are Jactina Price, I expected more from a strong woman who I thought could make up her own mind and not just follow along your party line.


As DD looms: Where Is Wazza?
Just because they aren’t talking to you Erwin doesn’t mean they aren’t talking to people in their electorate.
I’ve spoken to Wazza many times … often to argue with him.

@ Steve Brown: Not envious of you at all. A bit of pity that your boss has dumped you in it over your Opposition to his Aboriginal Affairs strategy maybe.
A bit sorry for you when your boss Adam Giles said you were xenophobic. One of the few times I agreed with him.

@Hal Duell I suggest you take a look at the new electoral boundaries. Namatjira will take in the Alice Springs rural area. To suggest that “Paech has gone of town” is totally incorrect.
Everything I have ever seen and heard from Chansey Paech indicates he’s a man who is passionate about his home town, where his family have lived for generations. Namatjira it’s true takes in a large chunk of the southern part of Central Australia – of which Alice Springs is the major service centre.
To contrast, when Steve Brown talks up its usually in self interest, either as a builder or a land developer.
Perhaps you should stop interpreting others dreams and stick to your own fantasies Hal.

Thanks for the clarification Kieran. I have to admit I forgot to say I did see Eli at the town meeting, so apologies for that. And interesting to know Mr Brown and Mr deBrenni there but didn’t seem to hear a thing local people were saying.
