In the article in last week’s Sentinel Times (on page 1) about the Inverloch Transfer Station closure by Madeleine Stuchbery, Cr Andrew Phillips compares the emails he had received from the Inverloch Residents and Ratepayers Association, supporting the closure of the Inverloch Transfer Station, and the Bass Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association, fighting to keep it open.
This is not comparing apples with apples here for the following reasons: the Inverloch Residents and Ratepayers Association have not met since February 2016 and have only four financial members!
The president is also the President of the South Gippsland Conservation Society!
Is this a sneaky way of muddying the waters or not?
Although the Bass Coast Residents and Ratepayers is the new kid on the block, I know it has approximately 150 members, so who is making a better representation of the majority when it comes to the question of closing the Inverloch Transfer Station?
