On the road to nowhere

Prison officer Edward Krizman is concerned about his own future and that of his workmates.
Prison officer Edward Krizman is concerned about his own future and that of his workmates.

SIX years ago, prison officer Edward Krizman decided to leave Sydney to start a new life and a family in Grafton.

Today Mr Krizman and his wife have two beautiful children and is very much part of the community.

"Grafton is such a beautiful town," said Mr Krizman.

" I love the sports facilities, the people, and the idea of leaving town upsets my whole family."

Mr Krizman attended yesterday's rally, which was held against the planned downsizing of the Grafton Jail, with wife and children to show his support.

Since the announcement that Grafton Jail will likely lose more than 100 jobs, Mr Krizman has been worried about what will happen to his job.

"We are hoping for the best, but they have a lot of power," Mr Krizman said.

"The sad thing is families have already been torn apart.

"We all fear about our future."

Mr Krizman said the rally had achieved its goal of rallying the community behind the jail and was hoping it would achieve its goal.

"This is the place I want to live and bring up my children," Mr Krizman said.
