Comment on Port Augusta’s Mayor: When softly-softly diplomacy isn’t enough to get a town out of the morass by Port Augusta Councillor Tony Mitchell.

Firstly … a few short answers to some early posts. NO! You can’t have her!
Reading the article is just as it is listening to Joy, she has unbelievable support from the WHOLE community. We, as a Council, have strived for years to bring about change … there’s still a bloody long way to go, and it is never ending. My short time on Council (10 years) has seen many changes, but they have come from many years of battles that began prior to my Council existence. I was, however, present during the visits by Alice Springs and subsequently Ceduna Council and would encourage both to continue with the work they are doing. Joy’s comments might sound like we “wasted our time” helping out other local government bodies, but you would be more than welcome to re-visit and re-establish contacts again.
