‘Local’ is lost

There is often a sense of connection between communities and local government representatives, a connection that generally is not bound by the ideologies and politics inhibiting the public’s relationships with our State and federal politicians.

It occurs to me that the State Government does not rate the local connection, with the “big is beautiful ideology” it seems so hell-bent on implementing.

This is a historic time for the Local Government Advisory Board; there is an air of “permanence” about this potential change.

Let’s hope their decisions on this issue do not result from a simple desire to tow the ideological line of the “temporary” State Government of the day.
