Comment on CLP pre-selects Steve Brown for Araluen by Janet Brown.

I would like to remind the readers it was due to the Labor Party in government that starved Alice of funding.
Closed us off to land to build houses. It deliberately stifled us of growth.
The result of years of that has closed doors on businesses ensured our growth stopped and declined so the results caught us.
A new seat in Darwin and a lost to us here in Alice. We now have two seats. Araluen and Braitling. We lost Greaterex. The CLP has ensured land is available to build homes.
New business ventures are about to proceed. Work coming to liven up the CBD.
People will say money pulled from some services. Services that were high cost and little or no outcomes after millions were spent.
We have to fund programmes that benefit our youth our unemployed our elderly our people our communities.
People are important our prosperity is important what is not important is funding organisations that continue to fail and deprive people of real outcomes.
The CLP is gaining its balance and credibility. We now have forward momentum. Voters just have to decide: Do we continue to grow and prosper with the CLP or climb back on the slide heading down and backwards. With Labor at the wheel.
We all have a choice to make how you use that choice will ensure which direction we go. Independents have a place in politics we have all seen the disaster of the federal outcomes where Australians were short changed by deals that got their support.
We are the Territory. We need to grow the regions, that is what makes the city strong. Regions are the base to a good economy and strong people.

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.


The millions and the misery
Jen, how many failed programs have you been employed with?
This is not about giving young people a voice this is about giving young people a safe space.
With people who care about their safety. Not a government program that employees robots who perform for the wages.
This project is about people supporting kids and ensuring their safety. Relax. Revive and not be throw on the street after the place closes.
Empathy and real compassion will be the base of volunteers.
Not a government position in a high needs spot. People who care. That is why we will succeed.


The millions and the misery
The perfect location.


Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
I really am not surprised by the responses by people who have been part of these failed programs.
And still are part of them. You all yell loudly the amount of agencies who are doing something.
Yet our you problems continue. These places are all individual pieces of the puzzle. Never to join up and offer real security and safety. Peace meal titbits.
What we are dissucissing is a community centre that is open and operating 24/7. Were kids have a place. The current supports while well meaning miss the big picture. Kids want security and safety. Couch surfing is not what I would call safety.
This will be a place to call into to relax. Get a feed and relax. Similar to a home environment one that will give opportunities to kids to make life choices on their voice.
I watched for the first time last night blind side. What a story. A story to reinforce the need for a place and people to care for our kids.
Those people who want to pat themselves on the back and protect themselves is the real shame of failing our kids.
We are taking a stand to provide safety and security to these kids. And you want to knock us for standing up for these kids. Really. I really do not care about your failures. I care about the kids.
