Today, her newest policy is to move the Entertainment Precinct to where the Port Authority headquarters building is - even though there is no offer from Cairns Ports for any use of this site (and which most agree is best used for an additional hotel in support of the convention centre). Her comments today mark the THIRD position FLIP FLOP Cochrane has held on the precinct - for she voted "aye" to approve the site on the waterfront, where all the planning was then done based on her affirmative vote! (Page 128 from the agenda of 11 December 2008). Not only did she vote to approve this site, but she seconded the motion to approve made by Alan "Trouser Snake" Blake, a motion carried unanimously by council! For those interested, she also voted "aye" to fluoridate Cairns water supply at the same meeting.
This isn't the only affirmative vote that FLIP FLOP Cochrane is now running away from. She then went on to disavow the several-year planning process for the CBD renewal, as well as her vote to approve the new parking station in Grafton Street! She touted her own ideas that she tearfully explained were rejected by "the engineers".
What kind of person votes approval and then attacks the decision in order to curry voter favour? A dishonest person, that's who. My mum always told me that withholding the truth with the intent to deceive is a lie. That's what FLIP FLOP Margie is doing. This should be a matter of investigation by the CEO of council, except with Cochrane clearly unable to perform the duties of mayor and basically unelectable, she'll be retired by April 30.
Cairns doesn't need a dishonest Mayor.
Of course if this flip flopping and dishonest representation of her previous votes is due to Alzheimer's, we of course mean no offence.
