Rate Rises

“We have seen that when a people in peril can save themselves only at the cost of a quick and dramatic change in their habits and beliefs, they usually prefer to perish.”

L. Sprague and Catherine de Camp: Citadels of Mystery.

There is so much on this issue that i can only say that it is total greed and the council and TheCEO and TheOfficers just decide what they want and then collect if from us and we just go along with it.

Council refuses to hear your views prior to establishing the budgets developed by the bureaucrats whose wants and needs are quite different from yours.

In the last 10 Years:

  • The Consumer Price Index (CPI) has increased 33%: rates have increased three times CPI
  • Rates have doubled the amount that the Municipal Association of Victoria calculates that council costs have actually increased
  • Rates have increased over 100 –110%%
  • Gas has increased 80%
  • Fruit & Vegetables 80%
  • Milk 20%
  • Bread 45%
  • Petrol/fuel for vehicles has only increased 55%
  • Food and non alcoholic beverages 45%

To reverse this trend and add financial accountability to Mornington Peninsula Shire, it is essential that the following be un-elected!!!

¤     GIBB, DAVID: Seawinds

¤     CELI, ANTONELLAi: Seawinds

¤     Goodrum: Nepean

¤     Shaw: Briars

¤     Martin: Red Hill

      An intention to damage a political opponent’s chances of election is permitted under Qualified Privilege. In any event, truth is a defence to defamation.

    It is high time the ‘old guard’ is given the ‘heave ho’. What we need are Councillors with a fresh, transparent approach. UNELECT the stale, sycophants and let’s achieve ratepayer driven governance !!!

    You are not really worth another post…

    Good luck in the elections, I hope you get in..

    It will be fun watching you, before the minister throws you and your other cronies (Rogers, pittock, et al ) out

      hope to get in also. doubt that minister will kick me out as i know more about lga1989 and what theceo and his hacks can do than they do. they ar good at making threats to uniformed councilors who are two (six actually) lazy to figure it out themselves or are part of thesix who are quite happy with that synergism. and my opinion, of course, is for them to bring it on. i might add that the two letters from theshire threatening me with legal action for defamation have gone no where as there is none. you see i know those laws also and walk the fine line. truth is not defamation! colorful language is not defamation!
