Comment on Angela Pamela u-mine core message in Greatorex campaign? by Phil Walcott.

Many thanks, ASN, for the opportunity to contribute to the debates and positions that will continue to emerge over the next 11 weeks. I’m very keen to be selected by the Greatorex community as their next representative in the 12th Legislative Assembly and beyond.
The result of the election is in the hands of the constituents. I want to represent the people … not a political party. I’m keen to hear of their issues, concerns, hopes and dreams. Once I resign my current position, I’ll be much better placed to canvas those views … as residents, businesses, community groups and others. I hope the people from all sectors of the Greatorex community will give me the opportunity to represent them.
Que sera, sera!
There may well be more candidates that are yet to reveal their intention. They too are invited to come to the Greatorex Gathering to be held at Charles Darwin University Higher Education Centre on Wednesday 1st August from 7pm. Give the people of Greatorex an opportunity to “quiz the candidates” … it’s YOUR election … it’s YOUR choice!

Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.
