Comment on Indigenous art gallery centrepiece of Gunner’s plans for Alice by James T Smerk.

I’m sorry but is Mr Gunner taking us for fools? He has apparently made this 50 mil commitment that won’t happen until 2020-2021… Well that’s funny as there will be another election around then and the project will most likely be scrapped (if the opposition win) or be a big part of campaign for the election. Sounds to me he is campaigning already for the next election. I can just hear the motto – if you don’t vote for us it won’t get done… How about you start it now or and have it finished by next election mate! Then we will know you’re a man of your word and not just all talk and promises.
P.S The whole Araluen site needs to be bulldozed and re-planned, there is plenty of space there!
and 50 mil sounds like an awful lot of money… but good idea.
Now just to stop tourist/people getting robbed, stabbed, assaulted etc. Our perceived image is a lot more valuable than some future building that may never come about… (sad face)

Will Minister keep delinquent kids off the streets?
I think ensuring they have adequate and safe housing (homes) would go a long way. This might encourage them to stay home and not go around causing trouble. Start there.

Great result, good work boys!

New brawl looms over civic centre loan
All too often elected people tend to just worry about their term and not care about the future. I think this is what we are seeing here… apart from Eli who appears to want what is best for the town and not just what is best for this year.
Can we please see the sums and have someone justify the decision?

Volunteer-run super race to bring $6m
I don’t see why the NTG don’t invest more in this event. The prize money is small and there aren’t any incentives to help people get here.
I think it was a prize amount of 20k last year … doesn’t seem like much.
Use some of the millions spent to get NRL here (which doesn’t achieve high numbers) and invest on something that brings thousand of people here every year!

Council rates draft: up 1.5% despite surplus
Eli can you please wake these people up? I want to hear them justify their decision against what you have said – if that’s even possible.
Why aren’t they informing us? Secrets breed distrust and that’s what we all have for them.
