    You have served Alice Springs greatly.
    Alice Springs is in debt for your services and just wish there more people like you in our community.
    You are the rock of the National Transport Hall of Fame.

    All the best, Liz. And thanks, not just for your time spent as a councillor but for giving Alice the National Transport Hall of Fame. I predict your work out there will stand the test of time.
