ONLY two days ago, we called for more transparency and a commitment from those in Greater Port Macquarie considering their options at the next Local Government elections.
Yesterday the political earth shifted with figuratively and literally the biggest hand going up so far.
Peter Besseling’s announcement will create more openness now. as others state their case alongside the dedicated quartet that has already declared.
When Mr Besseling was our State MP he was very visible on the streets, at events and among the many sporting and community groups.
Both he and his successor, Leslie Williams, share a very similar character trait of being equally as visible after their election victory as they were prior to it.
But by far the best result is the backing of Nats stalwart, Jim Pearson, who has shown our future should be about the “best people to lead”, regardless of political persuasion.
