Comment on Four more years of same-same by Evelyne Roullet.

May be the “conservatives” were elected, but if they have some WISDOM they would have realised that there is a good opposition to their tactics of domination and they would be more open to the views of the “progressives”.
Hopefully the bickering we saw during the campaign will stop and the new council will work in harmony for the good of Alice.

Four more years of same-same
As a longtime resident of Alice, I felt it was appalling to see venom spat through the Facebook and other social media.
Some candidates and supporters have shown their true colours. They didn’t contribute anything to democracy, and instead by trying to put people down, but put themselves down.
Everybody deserves respect regardless of their point of view. All candidates should have been thanked for putting up their hands and give their time to the town because this takes courage and devotion.

@ Charlie (sorry mate old age): I am simply asking if the people of Alice should make a petition for Assange? If yes, then the petition should be presented to the council which in turn will present it to the Feds.


Cr Auricht: All the way with USA on fate of Assange
The situation of Assange is terrible, but like John Bell I fail to understand what the council can do about it when there is nothing it can do about the crimes in our town.
Australian politicians are in a position to advocate for Julian Assange and have, thus far, failed to do so. How could our Councillors succeed?
The role of each councillor is to:
• Represent the interests of electors, ratepayers and residents.
• Provide leadership and guidance to the community.
• Facilitate two-way communication between the community and the council; and
• Participate in decision making processes at meetings.
Nothing here indicates it can get involved with Federal decisions.
