Recent debate about the Albury based website “BORDERLINE Albury Wodonga” got me thinking, “where do I know this Paul Greene chap from?”.
Google drew a blank, sure I saw the interview with him on the Prime news segment, and I knew I had seen him before.
Alas I had to rely on the comparatively slower and infinitely less reliable method of actually remembering.
In fact it was an article on BORDERLINE that actually jogged my memory, an article about the proposed child-care development at Fromholz park.
Scan back about six months to a community meeting I attended and….yep, I’d be willing to bet money that Paul Greene was (and in all likely hood still is) a member of the “Save Fromholz Park” group.
So, if I’m right, Paul “without fear or favour” Greene may not be as non partisan as he would have us believe.
I guess time will tell if Mr Greene’s name appears on a ballot paper for the council elections in September.
I don’t really have strong views on the proposed creche development, but I don’t think that Albury council has put forward a very clear case as to why the development should go ahead at such a de-centralised location and why it needs to occupy a site currently occupied by wildlife.
I think there has been a fairly deliberate attempt to stymie public debate over the location of the proposed site.
