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

Oh my, Melanie, another that raises differences for special preference is that what you are saying. That is my point. We who call Alice home have many different facets to us but we need to work together for our community. We cannot be sidetracked with petty issues of a few and forget the big picture. Which is what has happened. SEGREGATION. So what is your agreement a town we can all live in that has strong foundations to support those struggling. Or the town we currently have dysfunctional and divided. I put community first. Only with strength of community can you provide excellent assistance to those in need. You, Russell, Bob and others with your blinkers would have us continue in a town of segregation and divided at too many levels. Wake up and put your effort into strong community and work with the change that sees outcomes for everyone.

Ryan re-elected Mayor, Brown heads councillor line-up
In council we have from TAG Steve, Eli, Dave and Geoff. That is half the elected councillors. That was a vote for the removal of the ridiculous from our town. And stop the segregation by three tiers of government that have openly promoted racism in our Territory. I would like the blue and white signs removed. And for the people of the Territory to work together. We were using the words social inclusion but we need to do more than that – we need to work with cooperation from all. Our town our responsibility. Sorry Bob and Russell. Your minority issues are not relevant in a majority Alice plan. We need to fix issues for the Majority – the bigger issues – and then work on assistance for minority issues.

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.
