Council travel checks welcomed

January 12, 2018

It’s been more than a few years since Grumpy hopped a plane and endured the stultifying boredom of attending an annual get-together of the country’s Councils.

Once upon a time the agenda reflected the importance of third-tier governance, but gradually the programmes  have been plagued with unnecessary, time-wasting subjects.  For me, the cruch came in Canberra when a whole swag of important motions failed to hit the floor after we had endured, among other distractions, the tedious ramblings of a so-called sports personality.

Opposition local government spokesperson, Unley MP David Pisoni, is to be congratulated for his election pledge to have all travel expenses paid by ratepayers  out there in the open.
