The case for independence

Posted Monday 29 April 2013

More than 80% of residents are opposed to Mosman being swallowed up by a remote mega-council.

This website and the Council newsletter being letterboxed to residents feature a condensed version of Mosman Council’s official submission to the state government’s review of the structure of local government.

Mosman is indeed fortunate to have a leading economist and academic as Mayor. Peter Abelson’s cogent exposition of Council’s position is surely one of the most compelling submissions made to the inquiry.

Attached is an edited version of the submission of our resident’s committee on the issue, which I chair. It reflects the passion and depth of feeling within the community for continued independence.

I commend both submissions to you and welcome your feedback and support as we all work to preserve the community we cherish.
