Comment on Can Bess Price wrest Stuart from Labor? by Bruce McRae.

Bess, you are facing a daunting task but don’t become discouraged. Draw strength from the responses of all those who reside in the electorate whether supportive or critical. Your major task is that of genuine, inclusive and transparent representation of the constituency. You have plenty to work with, including but not limited to; shire disasters, poor education outcomes, need to clarify agency relationships ie. shires, CLC, NT Government, Federal Government, Intervention plus the issues identified by Phil Walcott. What an amazing scope of challenges! My very best to you and great work by Kieran and Alice Springs News. Just remember: “Every day we are presented with exciting opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.”
