MP bats for the bureaucrats
AS flying foxes abandon the rainforest reserve next to Maclean High School the stink remains, politically and in the nose.
Member for Page Janelle Saffin hit back at Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker’s attacks this week and said she was glad a licence to disperse the animals had been made.
“This is what I have worked to achieve,” Ms Saffin said.
“I can say in response to Luke Hartsukyer’s silly comments, that the only one feeling the pressure is Luke himself, for not doing his job and helping to resolve it much earlier, and for deceiving the people, by not working on the plan from the beginning; a plan that requires, short, medium and long-term goals, which is what I have done since I was first asked for some assistance.
“Luke, I am going to offer you some unsolicited advice, and it goes like this:
“The best thing you can do, is to leave the people alone, leave the public servants alone and let them get on with their job of resolving this problem to the satisfaction of the students, staff and parents.
“It really does not need any more grandstanding and attacks on me ... people are weary with it.
“You carping does nothing to advance the safety and health needs of the school community.
“Given it is your electorate, I am trying to help you do your work, that you seem unable or unwilling to do.”
