Who facilitated the placement of a speed bump on Moruya bridge?
This afternoon I was rendered stationary behind five cars as they slowed to a yawn-provoking speed to negotiate the bump.
Fortunately, I only travel in this direction once or twice a week.
However, for those drivers negotiating this interruption on a daily basis, I sympathise.
Traffic flow through Moruya can be very testing when there is a minor influx of population into the town.
During peak holiday times, this bump is going to cause considerable grief.
One Easter Saturday, it took twenty minutes to drive a kilometre into town.
The traffic congestion, as a result of this speed bump, is going to be mind-boggling in the school holidays, particularly Easter and Christmas time.
Not particularly conducive to rest and relaxation, which are the expectations of holiday times.
We regularly see how our federal politicians seem out of touch, but refuse to admit it, and now it seems it’s spread to our local councillors.
In your publication, 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.
The said councilor stated she had the interests of the shire as a priority and that everything she is doing is correct.
Because she is in a position of power, we the public are just meant shut up and buy that.
She, like the state and federal counterparts, are way off the mark and out of touch with the voice on the street.
We, the public, are entitled to and demand better governance.
It’s about time all you ratepayers out there stopped voting because you “heard he was a good bloke” or you’ve been into her shop; or your second cousin’s daughter went out with their son 15 years ago and told you she was lovely. Actually start 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.
I would like to thank the entire community of the Eurobodalla Shire for supporting someone they know affected by cancer by celebrating the 31st anniversary of Daffodil Day on Friday, August 25.
Across the Southern region, it is predicted that approximately 1,506 people will be diagnosed with cancer in a single year. Cancer Council NSW is committed to reducing this burden and events such as Daffodil Day are vital to this effort.
The annual community event fundraises for vital cancer research, support services and prevention and advocacy programs. This year the Southern region has raised $104,000, with more funds still to come in.
This is an outstanding result that will go towards local programs such as SunSmart, SunSound, Eurobodalla General and Practical Support service and Eat It To Beat It.
It was great to see so many of our wonderful supporters out on the streets encouraging people to buy pins and fresh daffodils.
It was inspiring and motivating to see so many wonderful people coming together to raise vital funds for research, support services and prevention and advocacy programs across the region.
We simply couldn’t do this without the Eurobodalla community.
