Council Debate Silenced!

By July 27, 2021News

For a second month in a row, Lord Mayor Clover Moore has called time on the Council meeting before all business had been dealt with, effectively gagging debate and thwarting the democratic process. Her move means the concerns of other Councillors, some of whom have had Motions on Notice for more than four weeks, won’t be addressed for another month.

My own Motion asking Council to address cleansing and waste issues in Darlinghurst is one of those that’s been kicked down the road. So much for transparency, so much for responding to constituents, so much for taking action.
