For those who vote in the East Gippy Council elections; EEG and our sister group GEG sent 10 environment questions to the 17 wanna-be Councillors.
Only two had the courtesy of replying before the deadline; Bill Gamble and Peter Giddings, with fairly good answers. Then Peter Gardiner replied late.
The others obviously don’t give a stuff.
However, the Friends of Mallacoota had a bit more success and the responses are fairly well reflective of their general attitude to the environment. They asked:
“Do you support an ocean access development for Mallacoota’s Bastion Point that has majority support, is supported by the Department of Transport, has a lower impact and will cost considerably less to construct, operate and maintain than
Council’s proposal known as Option 3b?”
