  1. If Wright was re-elected after putting out that uninspiring blurb it’s no wonder you’re not getting things done.

  2. Sounds like you might know more about our Neville than you are prepared to admit.

    Back in 2003, Neville campaigning in the rural ward of King Valley said that he ‘would stick it up those silvertails on council” … and then he became one of them. He was the best hope of rural representation that we had. In the 2005 elections (with no wards), Neville surprisingly got back in on second preferences.

    Neville is a simple man, a bushy and and all around good bloke. His weakness is that whilst he is passionate about the things he knows, when an agenda item is outside his experience, he appears to have nothing to contribute and votes for the majority viewpoint.

    Just take a look at his committee portfolio. If we lose Neville, council will have no one to look after ‘the dirty work’ portfolios.

  3. I don’t know anything about him except what he wrote, Greg, which was only about himself and not what he identified as the needs of his constituents. So he comes across as someone who only wants to get elected for the self-glorification, like so many others.
