Comment on Council should not be in government’s pocket, says mayoral candidate Brown by Janet Brown.

Russell. You rant about stats. It depends on the answer you require to how you ask the question to obtain the stats needed to promote segregation and the removal of personal rights. Six break ins in six weeks at Town and Country. That is real stats that prove that if you cannot buy grog you steal it. It also proves that open or closed grog is always available. So are these people breaking in committing a criminal act or are they being forced into criminal behavior due to outrageous restrictions. I personally would like to live in a town that enjoys same treatments as towns in Victoria, Queensland and others. To be treated differently in my opinion is to have my basic rights removed due to more choice in where I want to live in Australia. And I am sick of segregation imported by paternal views such as yours. Racism is alive and well in such statements that you stated in your comment.

Russell, you really have some issues you need to deal with and I cannot help you. The cultural centre is not about race it is about tourism. Selling Alice and part of our history and now. Tourists come to experience every thing about Alice. And you have your views and we will never agree.
I am now requesting that unless you have some points relevant to positive outcomes for Alice Springs please cease your personal attacks on myself and Steve.
Our fight for our town is to fight for a future to give opportunities to those who want to make it home for themselves and their families. Your focus on myself and Steve is not a healthy one. It contains major negatives and that is not what we are about.
We are fighting for the future of Alice. That includes a future for all including you if you call Alice home. Alice is an amazing place offering many great opportunities to those come here. We are very supportive of the tourist industry. We love Alice and we miss greatly our friends that have left town due to the issues that are tarnishing our amazing home.
Alice is worth the hard working from everyone who wants the best for our town. Without the race based policies that promote segregation and separation. So to all those reading this fight for our town don’t change addresses interstate.
Your vote for Mayor on March 24 will send a message to NT govt where we stand for our town. It is your choice. Progress or recession.

Oh don’t let the facts and truth get in the way of a stats provider. And Dom you really should stop and think about your rant. All things you mentioned are for safety of the entire population. No difference between states and territory. My point that you ignore is conformity to other states and territories. You talk about stats – I live in the real world. If it is your choice to live in the world outside of the facts of what you see and know. That is fine but rose colored glasses are not found in my personal objects. Facts, truth and knowledge are what I believe in. Not someone’s idea of the world according to them.

Planning another plan
We need planning to be the role of the town council, not the NT government from Darwin.
How can we plan for our future development when there is no plan.
A town plan from the early 80s is lost.
Until we have a town plan on development any master plan is a joke. And to my knowledge the master plan does not include development areas for our growth.


Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Identity politics. It has to end. Politicians need to be representing the people. The Territory.
So far I have seen none of this from those putting up their hands.
They are only talking at election time. Voters are confused on their rights. As a voter we have the right to demand elected members who will work for a better Territory. Not a better Darwin over the rest of the Territory.
Our Federal ministers have the role to work for the entire country. As minsters elected by states and territories into a Federal seat they should be ensuring the best of Federal funding for their electorate. They are elected to represent Australians. Yet they are managed by government departments.
The departments have signed agreements to allow overseas businesses to avoid taxes. The departments who have allowed foreign governments to own Australian land. The tax office which negotiated agreements with overseas companies to avoid paying taxes that everyday Australians have to pay.

Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
Appeasement is not the answer. Appeasement is the catalyst for further division.
January 26 is the date chosen to celebrate our place in the world.
People from around the world choose our country to call home. Because we are amazing. Australians are proud of our home. The division based on race is not Australian. That is apartheid. We need to stop this vile hatred of Australia now.
Australia Day is not up for destruction by an angry and racist group.


Custodians decline meeting with council on gallery
I for one do not see this town and its progress as being at the whim of aboriginal people over the residents of Alice Springs. This type of division has its claws strongly embedded in segregation and apartheid mentality. The future of our town should be decided by all residents. I am so fed up with people using the race card to gain control. This should not be about who has the biggest stick, it should be about the majority seeking growth and prosperity for Alice Springs. Not personal agendas and petty jealousy.


GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Jack, I do not have to walk a mile in anyone’s shoes.
It is clearly obvious that bandaid government mentality is all wrong.
What happened to outcomes and audits. Never happened. Throw more money at is the battle cry.
Regards of the fact that billions of dollars has only exacerbate the problem.
Money for nothing comes to mind.
Yet for governments to get that money some of us work hard to pay taxes, fees, levies and so forth. Our borrowings are through the roof. Time for outcome audited funding checks.
