Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 24th 2009
24 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 25, 2009 MB Do homework No doubt ex-councillor Andrew Ho has many times in his career on Strathfield Council heard a mayor of both political per- suasions say to him ''Resume your seat'' and ''Out of order''. Just as the present mayor and deputy mayor so frequently -- for ''scripted'' procedural reasons -- have had to say the same to Cr Danny Lim. Council agendas are on-line and available to councillors and the public before meetings, so that speakers can be prepared. With a motion by Cr Paul Barron on the agenda about the Port Enfield Community Committee, one might expect that the mayor would check the facts with the appropriate authority (who is not Labor Member for Strathfield Virginia Judge) and make a note to himself so as to report them accurately. That Crs Barron and Lim have egg on their faces from going to the media (before the council meeting) and wrongly listing the members, and then speaking with false information in council is quite funny. Ho, ho, ho! E. Werkhoven Concord West Rats! Yes they are everywhere RATS live among us -- that's a fact. Just how close is plain scary. They love to be about people, to raid foodstocks and to patrol their patch. The number of recent sightings of dead rats in Five Dock points to an even greater number of live rats in the suburb. Seeing a dead rat is not pleasant, but when a colleague stepped on a long-dead rat after dark in First Ave the other day, she was completely overcome. And understandably so. Canada Bay Council relies on people to report sightings of dead rats on public property so they can be efficiently removed. Dead rats and rat infestations on private property are another matter altogether. Kenneth Grahame may have portrayed the water rat, Ratty, as a loveable character in Wind in the Willows who whiles away his time by the river when he's not helping out his friends at Toad Hall. Real rats -- dead or alive -- are anything but lovable, except perhaps to their mums. Police station funded Burwood Police station is finally getting an upgrade. I write in reference to your paper's article Highs and lows - Transport wins, police lose out and editorial Four more years too far away (June 18). Both articles incorrectly claim that there was no money allocated for the construction of a new police station at Burwood. A reading of the 2009/10 Budget papers clearly shows that the Rees Government has allocated $9.4 million to the construction of Burwood Police Station. The money allocated to Burwood Police Station rep- resents the single biggest allo- cation of funds to any upgrade of a police station across NSW in the next 12 months. Contrary to both articles, the police and community in the inner west are the big winners from this year's Budget. Police will receive a new station at Burwood which will provide local police with world-class facili- ties and access to the latest tech- nology. This is part of the Rees Govern- ment's investment of more than $69.6 million in capital funding in 2009/10 for the planning and con- struction of new police stations across the state. While buildings themselves don't drive down crime, improv- ing the standard of accommo- dation and supporting the hard working local officers is critical in fighting crime. Tony Kelly Police Minister Politics at play Yes, Bill Thompson, your role on Enfield Community Liaison Com- mittee is definitely a political one (Opinion, June 18). Bill Thompson is secretary of the ALP (Strathfield branch). Secretaries control the branch numbers. Virginia Judge is also a member of the ALP (Strathfield branch). This is her branch. Cr Keith Kwon, mayor, is the president of the ALP (Strathfield branch). Cr Hope Brett-Bowen, deputy mayor, is also a member of the ALP (Strathfield branch). Mat- thew Blackmore also possibly a member of ALP (Strathfield branch). Yes you do talk to these people. In a previous letter you stated you go to church in Strathfield. You need to look at your values. As residents can see, there is no point talking to Bill Thompson because your complaints won't go anywhere. Virginia Judge failed to stop the Port Enfield Intermodal project. When you look at the ALP members as mentioned in this letter, what are the chances of residents' complaints being ac- tioned. I think not. Resign now Bill Thompson Cr Paul Barron Independent Strathfield Council WRITE TO US MAIL: The Editor Inner-West Weekly, 181 First Ave, Five Dock, 2046.
