Comment on ANZAC Oval art gallery good for Mall traders: Chamber by Eli Melky.

Dear Ed, thank you for your ongoing interest in covering this issue.
I take note of the CEO’s comments that he met with Council in the past few months.
I do not recall meeting with the Chamber, so I checked my diary and emails for past few months dating back to November 2017, just in case I missed it.
Alas, nothing.
I am wondering who did the Chamber meet with? Was it Council officers or with individual Councillors separately?
I think given the fact that the decision to go ahead on Anzac Oval or not ultimately rests with Council, it is important to remain transparent on who Council meets with.
For the record, I am not a member of the Chamber, if I were I would see that as a conflict to meet with them.

‘Cannibalising’ Vowles is childish, says CLP
The failure and bad decision making by an out of sort ALP should not be seen as CLP success. You still have to earn it.
This time Territorians are not just going to hand it to you by default just because you happen to be a challenger.
Time for change does not always mean go back and appoint a previously failed group.
Bad way to do business.
Territorians will be demanding a new political party made up of qualified, capable people with experienced corporate and community leadership experience.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Well all I can say is, CM, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
Congratulations, you have well and Truly trumped the previous CLP Government on their inability to lead Territorians. Well done.


Gunner not the best Chief Minister we can have: McConnell
The ALP have successfully surpassed previous CLP government successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be a one term administration.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to attack three members of your caucus should have their advisors badge suspended.
The challenge remains who will stand up for Territorians?
If we must have a political party, surely we can come up with better than the previously sacked CLP.


Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
The ALP have successfully surpassed Previous CLP Gov successes.
That is to say they are now well on track to be sacked in 2020. The challenge remains whom will Territorians appoint to lead them out the s#@t?
Surely not the previously sacked CLP.


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
@ Steve Brown: On the code of conduct matters and to your strange comments “open disclosure may not support your publicly declared statements”.
I appreciate your attempt to justify your earlier story about you being served a code of conduct [complaint].
However, the public are aware that on this occasion it was multiple code of conduct complaints that were made against multiple elected members, served all within days of each other.
These matters have been reported on widely across many media outlets and very accurately here on Alice Springs News Online.
Cr Cocking and I have been exonerated from all charges. Those charges were dismissed after each councillor was required to go through an exhaustive legal process which involved providing a comprehensive defence, proving that the applicant made baseless, vexatious and frivolous complaints. If it is a full explanation you demand, then which part of “exonerated” don’t you understand?
