Comment on Gallery swap: Aborigines second in pecking order by Evelyne Roullet.

Waste of energy, time, money gone in this project.
But when are we going to get an idea of what is going to go in this gallery? Where those beautiful paintings, artefacts, creations are stored waiting to see the light of day?
“At this stage we are putting this proposal confidentially to Council to gauge your support before we seek the views of Aboriginal people and other residents.”
The town council should never have accepted to discussions behind closed doors. We the residents and ratepayers have the right to know.
Mr Gunner promised an open and transparent and trustworthy Government.
So did our Council. Therefore: All government data should be made available upon request, in a timely manner.
