Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia  Volume 7, Issue 102; December 2005     


Important Early Notice of a Special Event


Hopefuls agree to forum


THE Scotland Island Residents Association has called on all six Pittwater candidates to attend a public forum days before the November 26 by-election.

The association, together with other offshore community groups, will hold the forum at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Newport on Tuesday, November 22, at 7pm.

Association vice president Paul Purvis said it was an opportunity for all candidates to speak about their "vision" for the area.

He said each candidate would be given 10 minutes to address the forum. There would also be an opportunity for residents to ask questions.

All candidates Alex McTaggart (Independent), Patricia Giles (Christian Democratic Party), Natalie Stevens (Greens), Paul Nicolaou (Liberal), Robert Dunn (Independent) and Mario Nicotra (Australian Democrats) will be at the meeting.

Mrs Giles said she encouraged community consultation during the election campaign.

"It's a great opportunity for the candidates to be grilled on the issues in the area," she said.
