so we are down to the nitty gritty now. Only 5 sleeps to go...
If you want the council to change, if you think, like me, that the way our community is managed should be better, then make your vote count and change the council at this election.
All but one council member is an old, retired, white man....the other councillor is an old, white retired woman. sigh.
They certainly don't represent me, they don't seem to have a collective plan for us and most just don't understand the role of IT and the knowledge services economy that is sweeping the world...
Council can't solve fuel prices, or immigration, or education and health funding
but they can REPRESENT their whole community, they can reduce redtape to make innovation easier and encourage entrepreneurs to want to start up their business in our shire, not Moruya, let alone Batemans Bay, Canberra, Sydney or Melbourne.
They can respect and value the natural assets we have here, the very things that drew almost all of us here it the first place. And it is these same things will bring more investment and more innovation to us than anything else.
It is this forward thinking and planning which will provide an exciting future for our children, not nimbyism and the same old same old respsone to the same old problems that just wont go away.
So, if you want things to change, start by changing the council - vote 1 Ivan McKay this election!
and at least 4 others, so your vote is formal!
we get the council we deserve - we voted for them!
