Statement by LGAQ President Mark Jamieson
The community expects much better of its local MPs than the behaviour displayed by the member for Southern Downs this week.
James Lister’s attack on Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie is as ill-informed as it is inappropriate.
No other civic leader in this State has faced as many challenges in this current drought as Mayor Dobie.
Mr Lister is simply wrong in his assertions. He does a disservice to the people of the Southern Downs.
He should immediately apologise and work with the council in dealing with this drought rather than taking pot shots from the sidelines.
