CONGRATULATIONS NEW DIVISION 3 COUNCILLOR

Congratulations to Cathy Zeiger, new Cairns Division 3 Councillor.

A desperate and disgruntled Raj Patel, told that a woman was being appointed to the seat, said bitterly to mentor John MacKenzie: "If I knew they wanted a woman for the job, I would have gladly changed.  They didn't give me a fair chance".


NEW CuC Cathy Zeiger (in green)

Messrs Hill Billy & Watch

Did she really want the job or did a wanna be mayor add another member to his numbers? It is odd that you have overlooked this. The team is spilling and a rat named

The question is often raised why does Townsville get the big spending infrastructure projects from federal and state government and cairns does not. One clear is example is the appointment of a woman who boasts no or little business acumen to sit on the council chambers to first and foremost represent the cairns local government area and then the division.

The city and region has been devoid of vision and council leadership since the unity team won the majority of seats and now we have an authority on the coordination of dog walking fundraisers to sit at the benches and make informed decisions that are best for all rate payers constituents and the community.

Townsville leads cairns does not.

Sshilling sees the mayor as weak and unable to make decisions, most people can see that, but what is too be gained by having his best mates wife now the councillor for division three.

Townsville gets funded cairns get amateur councillors promoted within at the expense of the best candidate doing the best job for cairns.

Your comments re Raj Patel made me laugh out loud. Exactly why we read and love HBW. I'm still chuckling at the comment 90 minutes later.

John Schilling should have realised Zeiger would have risen to the top of the list without his help

As it stands now, he has badgered most councillors into supporting her -
Making no secret of this aggressive advocacy for his friends wife

At it again this afternoon: hostile towards the Cairns High Principal and board during their presentation to council. That won't be forgotten in a hurry...

I wonder if the community realises how much Councillors are paid! If this is truly the appointment of a friend's spouse, it may constitute an act of patronage and a clear conflict of interest.

wow she flew all the way to Africa to give 40 kids some shoes. Now that is dedication to helping people. It probably cost her about $200 for the shoes and she is milking it for every publicity penny she can get. Id be pretty sure she has been selected not because of what she can do for Cairns, but for ability to do absolutely nothing to rock the Manning boat. Why else would he hold a secret selection process.

I have today nominated for the Caretaker Councillor position for Division 3 on Cairns Regional Council. i would sincerely like to thank the followers and commentators to this blog for making it a great experience ,i have tried to be as informative on topics that affect the daily life of the Cairns community as possible and get past the spin ,the world is changing rapidly and it is difficult to keep up with the 24 hour news cycle

i will now focus my attention on Division 3 so sadly this Blog has to come to an end .

Thank You

Raj

Detestable hypocrisy from Schilling - This is the man who maintained councillors should have strong business credentials. He then demands his mate's wife get the job over the candidate with strategic vision and genuine commercial credentials.

Schilling has as much chance of being mayor as Max o-halloran winning a gold medal in backstroke at the Rio olympics.

Anon @ 0622. The reason Townsville gets everything is because Townsville doesn't have a toxic talkback radio program that talks everyone into believing that we don't want or need such and such. They take what is offered and we talk or way out of the free money gifts that come and go our way. Put in place a non bias popular talk back program that more than 10% of the populous would actually listen to and watch Cairns grow. Like the free second hospital we were offered by the state treasurer (our local member)in the early 90's but the talk back idiots talked our way out of it because they wanted the present hospital to be the one and only because of the view and seabreezes. Don't believe me. Round up some old copies of the Cairns Post and read the letters, truly frightening stuff.

The only real funding we have received/promised last 10 years was due to a female mayor and female premier. The sexism in this town is part of the problem, grow up. Men in this town are hardly where they are due to merit.

1) The Townsville council rate structure is generally higher than Cairns despite general misinformation on this.

2) Townsville has accumulated significantly higher debt than Cairns to fund that infrastructure.

Was there a short-list? If so, how many? Were there interviews? If so, how many? This councillor hasn't been seen or heard of since her appointment - wonder when she is going to become "active" in her division???

Bob R. said...

Hamish Krint just how many of the current Council have been heard of or seen since they were elected hey? Life has been one fucken ball for the Manning Council. They can go off on hollidays and overseas whenever they fucken like at ratepayers expense and no bastard says anything. Mackenzie was ranting and raving on his program when the former Mayor returned to Tasmania for family matters yet has he ever taken any of the LNP Councillors to task for being absent from their division? What a fucken dream run these bludgers on the Manning Council have had.

I guess I'm using former councillor Rob Pyne as a benchmark - he was everywhere!

WTF Shanghai, That Bob R is a real tosser he thinks everything revolves around the fucken Mackenzie show what a tool. Me and you Shanghai know better A. Fuck it all revolves around us and a pissy Yum Cha. Hahaha

Bob R. said...

Manning even had the sheer gall to muzzle Councillors on speaking out about the biggest development EVER proposed for North Queensland - AQUIS. People have said that the Council has already paid a huge sum of OUR ratepayers monies towards the AQUIS proposal. OUR money. Yet where is the conscience of the individual Councillors on this? What are they all hiding? Just WHO was given our ratepayers money? Whatever happened to accountability and transparency? Isn't it just fucken amazing how the Cairns Post and Mackenzie have also been silent on this? Frankly I reckon it tells us a lot about the type of people we have as Councillors. All they care about is lying as low as possible, doing whatever Manning orders them to do, while raking in the huge salaries and pissing off on overseas holidays whenever they want to. Bludgers.

Rob Pyne will be a very hard act to follow. Where is the transparency in this selection. It is the ratepayers who contribute to these Councillor's wages and we should have some idea how the selection process was carried out. Schilling is as boring as old Bob. Can't think of any protective Mayor - oh! maybe Richie Bates who seems to be grounded.

the city reaps what the mayor and councillors sow hence the reason we are all hungry

Hodge was the most likely candidate, pyne only rolled him by 700 votes, took 2 of the 3 polling booths and lost the third by 91 votes, where he missed out was pre-poll as mr bates friend was handing out the independants cards and not unity, she was caught out on the 3rd day, amazing, they would not give him the gig as manning was worried about the public backlash he would have to deal with.Unity HAD 6 OF THE 8 controlling votes and they still burnt him, the selection panel was recommendation only.When unity dont support their own , god help Cairns

Mother Nature could have helped Cairns had the disaster struck and from it came stimulus in repairs, maintenance, damage clean up etc funded by insurance companies and governments.

So Zeiger gets the big splash in the Weekend Post, including a few fibs. Now let's see what she, and all the other councillors do! And more interesting, will she be prepared to spend a few of her own bucks when a genuine election comes along next year? Wonder how many of the 45 hopefuls will also spend some of their own loot to erect placards, go door knocking, do interviews etc. at the election too?
PS I'm not a left looney!

seriously what can the councillor for division three offer cairns and its constituents? what skill or experience does she possess that improves cairns and its peoples lives? I am at a loss as too what she can offer, other than the presumption she will sit by schilling as he tries to get the mayors position
