Comment on ‘Reduce chaos: police needed at all liquor outlets’ by Travis Bruce.

I think that there is not enough education on this within the community. It’s too easy for someone to open up in the media about floor prices and turning down taps. These people with these sorts of suggestions need to go out there and run awareness and consultation with the people.
Go to the council lawns and put a barbecue on or go to areas with problems. Talk to the people. Ask for their input. Don’t just think you’re in charge of anyone’s wellbeing, able to dictate terms to people. Our people are smart. They have ideas that can work. They just need to be heard.
