Jacinta Price’s bluster: parents not mentioned

2630 corflutes Jacinta OKBy ERWIN CHLANDA


CLP candidate for Lingiari Jacinta Price is misleading her Facebook followers about three Code of Conduct complaints against members of the Alice Springs Town Council.


We reported about “Code of Conduct complaints – all found to have been vexatious or without foundation – that she or people associated with her had apparently lodged against three fellow councillors.”


We put the allegation to her ahead of publication but she did not reply.


Ms Price said in her Facebook statement that the Alice Springs News had claimed “I had been part of three code of conduct complaints against Councillors. The fact remains I made just one Code of Conduct Complaint against one Councillor because this Councillor had made public claims that they were threatened by my family.”


At last night’s council meeting it was revealed that she and her mother Bess Price were the complainants against Cr Catherine Satour in two separate processes, and that her father David Price was the complainant against Cr Jimmy Cocking.


Ms Price is apparently expecting her followers to believe that she had no “part” in the other two complaints, having failed to disclose the involvement of her parents when we put questions to her earlier.


See our separate report on the revelations last night about the three complaints made by the Price family against Crs Cocking and Satour.


We are inviting comment from Jacinta Price.

    Why on earth are the parents involved? Jacinta Price is big enough to fight her own battles … making false allegations about people is uncalled for.
    The Code Conduct is there so that rules are followed. Breaking those rules by anyone should be instant dismissal because the job they’re in should be taken seriouly.
    People vote for you guys on good faith that you do your job properly.

    Nothing new here – although I am soooo glad that this is out in the open.
    Jacinta is very brave when it comes to posting from the safety of her Facebook site however she seems to get others to do her dirty work.
    She is vindictive, to the point of obsessive, when it comes to “getting back” at those she feels “need a lesson”. She uses Facebook as if she already has Parliamentary privilege, and then she relies on her “followers” to close ranks around her protect her from her own outbursts and mischievous vindictive behaviour.
    Jacinta should be ashamed. The CLP should jettison her ASAP!!
    Well done to Alice Springs News Online for exposing her ways!!

    Nothing on Facebook should be read as fact. The public need to be aware of this and not just blindly believe everything they read on Facebook.
    No one would be surprised a politicians (or want to be politicians) would do such things.
    It will not be a surprise to me when Jactina is elected in, this year’s voting is going to be a vote for change as no one has confidence in our current governments, at any level.

    Misleading her Facebook followers? This isn’t new!
    Sorry “followers,” you’ve been misled the entire time!
    Folly, Jacinta, nothing but folly!
