Big questions around The French Connection

The Beagle Editor, We regularly see how our federal politicians seem out of touch but refuse to admit it and now it seems its spread to our local councillors. In a Bay Post article Nathan: ‘I am not on holiday’ recently it was brought to light that one of our recently elected councillors spends months at a time living in France which created quite a storm but as usual the said councilor wrote to you stating that she has the interests of the shire as a priority and that everything she is doing is correct and as usual because she is in a position of power. The article quote Ms Nathan saying “I can do a large portion of what I do now in France; we live in a digital world,” “I am not on holiday, this is simply my other address.” “They knew my lifestyle before I was voted in,” To top this off Liz Innes, the Mayor, is quoted in the same article as saying: “I feel very strongly there is no reason she (Cr Nathan) should have to give an explanation to the community” We the public are just meant shut up and buy that. Well I have news for her and that is she, like the state and federal couter-parts, are way off the mark and out of touch with the voice on the street and we the public are entitled to and demand better governance. And as a secondary point its about time all you ratepayers out there stopped voting because you heard she was a good bloke or you’ve been into her shop or your second cousins daughter went out with their son fifteen years ago and told you she was lovely and actually started doing some real research on the people who wish to represent you in the first place and what they really stand for instead of whinging after the fact.. Start making your votes count for better governance. Pete Ward Moruya
