Fireworks expected over Deputy Mayor position
Aaah well Renz, I came second in the 2008 mayoral race and I didn’t see you outraged that I never became deputy. It really is up to the councillors of the day to vote for a deputy they support.

ED – Sorry Jane, but you came third in the 2008 mayoral contest. Murray Stewart came second. There were eight candidates: Damien Ryan won with 39.6% of the vote, Murray was second with 19.5%, and you, third with 15.5%, followed by David Koch with 14%. Murray was elected deputy mayor for the first 12 months.

Gallery: Council has no choice but to accept public’s verdict
Although I would not like to see the ANZAC Oval location come to fruition, I have to say the Alice Springs Town Council online survey is not reliable.
I personally filled it in twice to see whether it was flawed. There is no way it can be accurate and we therefore need another way to guage public opinion.
The practice of removing time-clustered multiple IP addresses from the results is not any way to maintain accuracy – if a group of people in one household decided to put their opinions in using the same computer on the same night, their vote would be amalgamated into a count of one for the group.
I know our council can do public consultation better although I guess they haven’t really got a say in the decision anyway.
It’s a pity our council is not trusted with real planning powers yet they take the flak for NT Government decisions.


Price, Turnbull should pay for town council function: Cr Banks
It’s very telling when certain Councillors are excluded from an invitation list to a so called Council event.
Exclusion is a form of bullying and needs to be called out.
It may have been okay for Council to host the PM at their own expense but terrible manners to invite only certain Councillors.
At the very least the organisers including the Mayor and CEO should apologise for the oversight.
And then it would be great if everyone moved on to discussions about actual council business.

They must be joking!
The more I think about this the more upset I feel. People go to the Supreme Court when they are facing events that are often lifechanging and tragic. It’s a serious time when you need to be at the court house. [The insensitivity of placing] this silly rabbit there. Where is the sense of place, the understanding of needing to provide the correct tone for people at the crossroads of their lives? If a family member has been assaulted, murdered, robbed, you will spend time at this place. Art can provide a spot for reflection and healing.
