Comment on Partition off Darwin to fix NT’s urban bias: Professor by Phil Walcott.

An interesting proposal to ponder, Rolf. With 10 of the 25 electorates based in Darwin along with 3 in the Palmerston area (that’s over half), may the discussion continue. The population concentration in Darwin and Palmerston certainly gives them greater proportional representation.
Any opportunity to explore alternative models that better reflect rural and remote influence is welcome.
Best wishes for your presentation today.

Leaving town: Centre, its creatures will miss Kaye Kessing
Such a tremendous thread in the rich fabric of our social tapestry.
Kaye has given so much with regard to her generous contributions to many of Alice’s people and organisations.
Her sensational talent with creating visual masterpieces is inter-generational.
Her bilby book trilogy is simply sensational and her many works that adorn various canvases around town are a remarkable testament to her creativity and passion for Central Australia.
Wishing you and Eleanor a most wonderful future together, Kaye, continuing to create physical and emotional artworks in the name of our first love … humanity. Journey well.
