Would someone please tell me why would anyone nominate again and again for council when they know damn well the public don't want them?
I am calling these people potholes - you can't get rid of them.
They are so cunning in what they do to hold their position. They do not represent the people, they are there for themselves.
The present council is the worst council Wagga has ever had and will continue to be if we keep voting the way Wagga always votes - above the line.
It's time we got our heads out of the sand and put new blood in the seats.
Vote below the line for new people to at least show some interest in what we want, not what the investors want for themselves.
By doing this we can turn our city back to the way it was, the best inland city in Australia. Clean, tidy and prosperous. No more potholes on council please.

Here is a proposal to level the playing field for ungrouped candidates in local council elections.
1st preference would be worth 6 brownie points.
2nd preference would be worth 5 brownie points.
3rd preference would be worth 4 brownie points.
4th preference would be worth 3 brownie points.
5th preference would be worth 2 brownie points.
6th preference would be worth 1 brownie points.
Those with the most points are declared elected.
If a voter does not fill out all six numbers, that vote would still be counted as far as it went. The voter would simply not have voted to full capacity.
Dr Joe McGirr has forwarded this proposal from me to Shelley Hancock. Her reply in 2019 was that it was too close to council elections to implement major changes (the elections were then due in 2020).
At the 2021 Glasgow Climate Summit, developed nations pressured developing nations, including China and India, to commit to using costly and unreliable renewable energy technologies.
Such commitments would make electricity unaffordable for many Chinese and Indians, while developed nations will continue to live in houses with heating, lighting and cooking facilities.
