The Bob "Sleepy' Manning Unity Team has well and truly discovered that their claims of "experienced leadership" are backfiring among the ratepayers. Fed up at the arrogance shown by this Manning council, Max O'Halloran skipped a candidate's forum in Division 7 that he had already agreed to attend!
You can't make this shit up.
Over $100K a year for a handful of meetings a month, and O'Halloran can't be bothered to take questions on his performance from the public!
O'Halloran was tipped by Edge Hill mates that the community was coming loaded for bear (or more accurately, turkey) - with questions about the massive cost overruns at his Tobruk Pool project and dirty trick campaign against the opposition candidates being just two of the questions teed up for him.
|HARD TO KNOW WHO'S PAYING|
WHOM - "CASH FOR COMMENT" MACKENZIE
OR BULLY-BOY O'HALLORAN
For a council running on their "experience", they are all looking loathe to be questioned about it in public. God knows they've avoided being questioned at the rubber-stamp council meetings held by Manning.
Cairns residents will recall that former mayor Kevin "Hiding from the Pakis" Byrne lost his bid for reelection after turning up at a tough Clifton Beach candidate forum, and then bolting when the questions got too tough.
