Mr. Saunders, you recently stated that if anybody thinks you are not a supporter of a rehabilitation facility they are "deliberately trying to be mischievous".
You were voted in to do a job, we expect you to do your job.
You say "you have spoken to the Health Minister and the Treasurer" and "you have written a letter to them".
What else have you done Mr. Saunders? Have you called for community consultation? Have you done any research? Have you spoken to anyone about this problem?
You say you are working "behind the scenes". Well, let us know what exactly you have been doing.
You further ask the question "Do you really and truly bang on the table and make demands of colleagues or focus on getting on and getting along".
Bang hard on that table.
Why are you worried about your colleagues? Worry about your constituents.
It has now come so far that members of the community have been forced to go public and give account of their lived experiences with drug addiction without the help of a rehabilitation centre. It should never have come to this.
I have today written to the Health Minister and the Treasurer, as a concerned citizen, and attached clippings from the Daily Liberal and the Dubbo Photo News in relation to this very important matter.
If monies should be forthcoming, you will not be able to take the credit Mr. Saunders as there have been others who have lobbied as well.
Do you have something to say? We welcome your letters which may run in print and online.
