Comment on Patricia Miller accepts retirement as of two days ago by Elvis.

This is a cop out and the Aboriginal people of Central Australia should not be happy about the board’s conduct and that of the retiring CEO.
There has been so much happening in regards to legal matters for Aboriginal people while the Board and the CEO have not done a thing except get good dollars for their respected duties.
The place needs a good clean out, starting with the board to fix up the bad management that has taken place over twenty years.
If you want to see good management and representation in legal matters regarding Aboriginal people, take a look at the way NAAJA represents its clients and the service they provide. That legal operation (board and CEO) make CAALAS look like pre-schoolers.
Get to the AGM and put the service delivery needs of the people first, starting by electing a good board that knows about the issues!

Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps?
Residents of town camps vote for a voice on Alice Springs Town Council (ASAP).
Residents in the municipal area of Alice Springs can’t vote in the Tangentyere Council elections. There is much debate about the direction around town camps and the forward planning on both social and economic benefits that’s to be had about the contribution that they bring to Alice Springs.
A conversation needs to be had between both elected councilors ASAP and it needs to be said that Tangentyere Council sits with in the guidelines of the ASTC. Maybe Mayor Ryan and his councilors need to start walking around on the camps introducing themselves as a start and it includes the Aboriginal elected councilor.

The purpose of this camp at Loves Creek is a realistic and very well thought through solution to the problems that Alice and Tennant are enduring right at this time.
As with any new direction that creates change the project was going to have its teething problems but logic thinking and compromise between the parties has to happen.
The boot camp must remain and improvements to security, lighting, training of staff, increased programmes for the client etc must be a priority in order to address the issues that are causing all sorts of unwanted troubles.
Powers from all parties need to put their differences aside and sit back down and finish what they have started to create long term change to an already sad environment.
