LETTER: It's time to try something new
FOR A couple of decades, Bundaberg's economy has been in decline and youth unemployment in particular has been a concern.
The sugar cane industry also is a standout example of how we continue to deteriorate with no solution or plan in place to turn us around.
With this in mind earlier this year I approached all levels of government elected representatives, the sugar cane industry leaders and the business leaders to see if we could form a group to work together to try to find local solutions to our woes.
My proposals have been dismissed out of hand.
It should be patently obvious to all that doing the same as usual is not working.
I would like the people who have been elected to work for us explain why they will not explore every opportunity to improve our lot.
It's time to try something new. We can work together to find solutions.
