Comment on Mayor’s ‘conflict’: council to ask for independent legal opinion by Evelyne Roullet.

I am not a fan of our Mayor and not a liberal, however he has served Alice Springs for years in a way he believed was right and he deserves some respect.
To be Mayor or councillors is not only money or power it is also personal and family sacrifices.
“The act and the bill both clearly state there is a facility in there for a council member to stand as a candidate for another election, I am not the first, and I definitely won’t be the last who have looked at moving into another level of government,” he said and Alex Nelson explained it very well.
The question of a conflict of interest: Which councillors belong to or support a political party? Which councillors would love to take the mayoral baton? If we want to be fair: All of them have a hidden / personal agendas.

@ 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.

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.

@ Mecchi: You know it takes two to tango, so unless you speak to the daughter to have her side of the story, you have not the full picture.
