Comment on Back to the future with Warren Snowdon by Daryl Gray.

I can remember working for the Electoral Commission at various elections, and always enjoyed the process of setting up, checking names against the rolls, and issuing ballot papers to voters from early in the morning to early evening and close of polling stations.
Then the excitement of sorting and counting ballot papers, and watching scrutineers try to work out trends early in the count, and sometimes challenge whether or not a voter’s intention was clear or another, and thus to be counted or put aside as informal (invalid).
Reading this article, I can remember the excitement surrounding both the supporters and the candidate Warren Snowdon when he was elected to the Parliament for the first time in 1987.
Makes one realise how time flies by, but also just what commitment and stamina Warren has shown to still be there serving as an elected representative nearly 32 years later.
So putting all politics aside, let me acknowledge his service to the community and wish him and his family well.
Thank you Warren for your faithful service to our communities and our nation.

What a great photo of you Peter, Mike has done you proud!
The care you have for the land shows in the health of the bush around you.

I hope for all our sakes both are realised in some way or another, and sooner rather than later.

Russell, thank you for sharing these personal experiences and insights.
Certainly you have a wealth of experience to draw upon after so many decades in the practice of law in Alice Springs.
I agree with sentiments already expressed here; there is a book waiting to be drawn from your time as a barrister in Central Australia.
Maybe one day then? I hope so.


Alice a place of dreamers and doers – for millennia!
Amelia, Maureen, and Alex, thank you so much for the kind words and lovely memories!
The sentiments are mutual, always good stories to tell people in Adelaide about the days of yore in Alice, and you all form many of those great memories and quirky tales of our adventures in the Red Centre. Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year!
