Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The writer of this blog sincerely hopes he has contributed positively the environment shared by him and has neighbours as a result of his fits term in office as their elected member for the Goodwood South ward of the City of Unley.

You of course will be the judge of that should there be an election for ward representatives in the upcoming Council elections for what will be known as the Clarence Park Ward. I hope you agree with me.

Following on from my recent blog post titled PPPP I have given thought to a shorter way of saying what I hope I conveyed in that post.

That message is I believe that has always and will always my intention to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. To be part of the solution one must seek to have all the facts that can reasonably be obtained to ensure you are qualified sufficiently to be able to make an informed decision.

A politician on the other hand, or at least my perception of a politician, is that he or she is likely to make decisions based on whether he or she can get re-elected. The chances of the right decision being made in that situation is, once again in my opinion, is much less likely.

So I will continue to seek to be as fully informed as I can be to ensure the decisions made by future councils are in your truly best interests, not the perceived best interest.
