Comment on Price wants council to do better than basics by Peter.

Steve: Not grouchy narks but increasingly desperate rate payers who are wondering how we can afford to live in the town and what its future will be when rates soar upward year after year.
Also legitimate concerns about basic services when the council has no clear idea of its role.
You say: “It’s not about spending more its about balancing what we already spend.”
So for every new expense Jacinta brings to the table we need to be given the details of the cuts that will be made to pay for it.

Jacinta, regarding your successful business, what assistance have you received on the basis of being Indigenous?


Price wants council to do better than basics
Steve, the issue of rates and Jacinta’s candidacy are not separate since she is proposing new expenditure that we the rate payers will have to fund.
So that Jacinta can have a fair hearing she needs to cost her program so we can estimate the rate increase or tell us what services will be cut to fund her plans.
It is a worry that you are endlessly defending a big spending candidate.
The year to year rates increases in this town are unsustainable.

A strong Indigenous women like Jacinta could fulfil her ambitions much better within one of the town’s corporations.
There is much to be done.
Perhaps she could get a job with CentreCorp and encourage them to adopt her social platform.
Or she could work with Congress to help them offload their embarrassing Memo Club.
The list is endless and the funds not accountable to hard working, rate stressed citizens of the town.
