We will resist! done your submission yet
Welcome to the new people added from the public meeting last Thursday. Our social movement is growing and as Mayor Simon said "We will resist"!
See below for more info on writing a submission, ir if you'd like a template please contact me or tsconsultants(@)iinet.net.au (remove the brackets which I put there to prevent spam).
AREA COORDINATORS: Please read the last newsletter http://www.mullumaction.org/index.php?cat=newsletters&nldate=1354296148
in which I explain the need for some Area Coordinators who will look after the street surveyors in each area. Currently I have an area coordinator for Blue (Dave Rawlins) Pink (David Sharonowitz) and Red (Kara Lonergan and Nick Southerden). We now need an Area Coordinator (or 2) for purple, green and yellow. Very soon I will do a group mailout for each colour and so you can "reply all" and talk amongst yourselves re: who will become coordinator.
MEETING FOR AREA COORDINATORS This Thursday 6 Dec, 6 pm. It would be great to get someone from each group starting the process taking on some responsibility as I shall be away from Friday 7th till 13th on a Gasfields Bus Tour of Queensland. The mobile phone didn"t materialise, so if anyone has one they can lend me, please call 66843723.

I heard that when the news was broadcast, the presenter mentioned that the Mayor had to sit on the floor! He looked quite at ease there, I must say.

It was a great turnout and thanks to everyone who attended. Apologies we couldn"t fit everyone in we had to go with what was available in the tight timeframe and zero budget. Will try & get Civic Hall next time.
