In reply to Leslie Williams letter (Port News January 18) I would like to inform Leslie I have no affiliation with any political party and my bias is supporting the community and not being in a part that the only interest is being elected into parliament and forgetting where they came from.
I find it a bit “cheeky” you accuse me of political bias, I suggest Leslie you take off the blinkers and have a look at your own National Party.
I noticed Leslie with her political bias, did not congratulate Rob Oakeshott for supporting the school which he raised in parliament when he was the state member (NSW Hansard 26/2/2004).
I also wish to inform Leslie in the Ordinary Council Minutes March 29, 2005 Item No Q12 with reference to correspondence from the BHPA, “the Director of Development and Environment advised that within Area 14 planning precinct, sites had been allocated for both a Catholic and public school.”
I would like to point out to Leslie which she already knows that politicians only do the least as possible and you let those labor minister get away with doing nothing about the school as they knew the communities were divided because of your insistence that the school be built on the site in Lake Cathie and also your Future School Committee had decided not to be part of the LCPA and to go it alone.
I would like to conclude by congratulating Leslie in finally supporting the LC/BHPA in having the school built in Area 14.
Bill Stewart, Lake Cathie
