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.

‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Interested: Your accusation that the CLP is pulling my strings is wrong.
I stood firm with my support as I do not care who is in government as long as Alice Springs reaps the rewards.
Party politics are for the immature voters. I am noone’s puppet.
My voice is for the good of the economy and stability of Alice Springs.
I applaud the Labor Party for their decision to promote Alice Springs.
And their choice of Anzac Highschool is the perfect location.

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.
