Comment on Anonymous donation doesn’t fix conflict of interest for council by Evelyne Roullet.

Mellisa, you have not offended me, and I am not attacking you, I make statements expressing what I feel.
You are speaking of contributors to Alice,may I ask how long you have been in town?
I have been in the NT since 1971 and in Alice since 1974.You do not know my political allegiance so you cannot speak for me.
You talk of geese and water birds so let me tell you that the goose is one of the most intelligent birds. It has a good memory and does not forget people, animals or situations easily which is what makes it such a good watch animal against intruders whether human or animal. So yes, thank God for the geese of the Council.
Maybe like your own words “Maybe, for the sake of openness and transparency”, go public with your opinions.

No Melissa, it is not just about the money, but the principle of the whole exercise:the taxpayers paid for the trip and the ratepayers for the function.This does not seem right to me.Why the then PM did not come when he went to Tennant Creek, if it was just a concern for us? Thank God for the “geese”( by the way it takes one to know one) we have elected in Council.
Those “geese” do not hide their identity, but you hide yours. Put your name on insults please.

In tyranny you are told to shut your mouth while the government does want it wants.

Elected government, like other workers, should sign a contract highlighting their promises.
Promises not kept will annul the contract (without pay) and another election could be called.

Rates may rise 3.5% but no civic centre swap in draft budget
The rates payers are the employers of the Council (Mayor, Councillors) and the subcontractors (CEO and all others employees) and as such we have the right to demand a performance year review/report, like :
Communication with the public.
Collaboration and teamwork (no stabbing in the back between councillors).
Problem-solving? Nothing done for children shelter!
Attendance and dependability, quality and accuracy of work.
No attendance to meetings only with a very valid reason.
