Brissie Babe: For your info, I am not a board …

Comment on Shock resignation as radio station ‘Aboriginalises’ by Desert Rat.

Brissie Babe: For your info, I am not a board member of CAAMA, or any other organisation.
If you think you know the truth, then let us all know so as everyone can be settled in their finger pointing and laying blame.
I don’t really think you know the truth.
And I do agree, he did work tirelessly and I did say earlier, that he did a fantastic job, but in the end, it was one man’s decision to resign. He was not asked to resign, but chose to.

Brassie Babe or Brissie Babe or whoever you are.
I am not on any board for any Aboriginal Organisation and don’t have anything to do with CAAMA. I know of three or four people on that board, and I can assure you that I am not one of them.
Why would I be trying to put some “feel good” in for the board?
You seem to know a bit more … I didn’t even know Karl Hampton was the “former” chair, until today.
Maybe you should spill the beans on what you think you know, of the whole story.
I’m only going on common sense and “The Grapevine” but you seem to have “inside knowledge”.
Maybe employed at CAAMA and trying to knife someone in the back?

Really people … there are people resigning from their employment on a regular basis around the world. This man chose to resign from his employment. What is wrong with that.
Have you bothered to think of the reasons why he decided to resign? I’m sure he wasn’t pushed.
Yes he did a fantastic job on radio, yes he was well known for that around the country, but in the end, he chose to throw it in.
There is no such thing as “Aboriginalization” within CAAMA.
Go and check how many non Aboriginal people, or “fair skinned” people are employed there.
Don’t just throw blame where it may not be deserved.

[ED – Thank you “Desert Rat”. We went to every reasonable effort to obtain comment from the CAAMA management, on Thursday morning, ahead of publication. We have still received no acknowledgement of our request, let alone a response on the issues raised. CAAMA has a responsibility to be transparent, to its listeners, many of whom are our readers, as well as the public in general. In 2016 CAAMA received $3.3m in “recurring grants” – no doubt coming from the public which deserves to know how its money is spent.]

Well done Coles.

I am curious as to why Mr Shaw is still living in a town camp when he must be getting paid in excess of $100k pa.

Re Voller, if he wants the support of the local community, then he needs to seen to be trying to do the right thing. Hanging around the casino wouldn’t sit right with the majority.

CAAMA radio: questions on Hampton appointment
Re S Taylor: I read most these comments with interest and amusement and comment when I feel that I might have a bit of an idea about what I’m talking about.
If you are confused then so am I as I wasn’t aware of CAAMA having a deputy CEO. And probably not funded for one.
Could you advise as to who this non-indigenous person is, please.
It would be good for me and other readers to be fully informed in this saga before making unfounded comments.
Or are you just presuming this because you don’t know what is going on within CAAMA.
