MARYBOROUGH COMMERCIAL CITY PEOPLE SHOW APPRECIATION FOR HELP AFTER FLOODS

February 21st, 2013

COMMERCIAL BUSINESS PEOPLE IN MARYBOROUGH SHOW THEIR APPRECIATION FOR HELP AFTER THE RECENT FLOODS

Maryborough CBD shop owners Julianne Sutcliffe, Kevin Vincent, Anne Proctor, Andrew and Allison Duggan, Lida Nielsen, Claudia Davidson and Darren Smith are postive about their future.

COMMUNITY spirit and the will to work shoulder to shoulder with retailers have Maryborough’s central business district shops back in business.

Most are trading as normal, while others are only days away from doing so.

But all have one thing in common – they want to say a big thank-you to those who helped out during the biggest flood in 60 years.

On Australia Day this year, as the rains came down and the winds howled, business owners, staff and volunteers moved stock and fittings out of shops that were in danger of being inundated with the muddy floodwaters of the Mary River.

Most of those people were back several days later, along with the army to help clean-up the aftermath.

TSG Tobacco Station owner Kevin Vincent said it took some work.

“The support I received from customers was excellent,” he said.

“We had a metre-and-a-half of water in the shop.

“I had a guy who I didn’t know from a bar of soap offer me a container and storage space for the entire contents of my shop.”

Mr Vincent said businesses saw the community as priority number one.

“I had specially designed cabinets made and fitted within a week after the water subsided,” he said.

“You can’t beat that community spirit.”

Jane-Ellen Proctor of Anne’s Irresistible Lingerie said the cellar was full and there were a few metres of water in the shop.

“Mum and I weren’t even in Maryborough, we were stranded out of town,” Ms Proctor said.

“Family, employees and total strangers moved all the stock out.

“We came home to mum’s double garage full of bras, undies and dolls.”

Ms Proctor said people came from everywhere to help.

“It has restored my faith in the town,” she said.

“Now it’s just one foot in front of the other – it’s good to see everyone getting back on board.”

DONALD TRUMP-ANTHONY ROBBINS-ROBERT KYOSAKI [RICH DAD POOR DAD FAME] HERE IN AUSTRALIA AT ONE EVENT,BE THERE…!

June 17th, 2011

Hi money makers & motivated people. Don’t miss this event.



This is  HUGE!

These people are coming to Australia
Probably likely to be the BIGGEST success and MONEY event ever in this country.

You can check it out here.

…and it’s not surprising when you hear the lineup.

For the first time ever, Donald Trump is coming to Australia.

Add to that, the global phenomena of Rich Dad Poor Dad fame, Robert Kiyosaki with his wife Kim Kiyosaki.

…and the success icon of our generation, Anthony Robbins.

All on one stage, all LIVE, all here in AUSTRALIA.

Now that lineup alone is enough to get your attention and start making your plans to attend.

So go to this website now to find out more about the event.

But don’t dilly-dally, I just got off the phone with the promoter, Michael Burnett and 5,315 tickets have already been SOLD. (As a seminar producer, I’m drooling with envy).

…add to that 3,000 tickets currently being held by several major corporations and the fact that the venue only holds 10,000, the event is effectively 80% sold out.

That’s why I’m rushing this email to you on a Friday.

Grab your seat today!

FRASER COAST APPOINTMENT OF NEW CEO @280K PER YEAR LISA DESMOND

April 28th, 2011

Lisa our first female CEO

28th April 2011

THE Fraser Coast Council's first female CEO kicked up her four-inch heels yesterday as one of her most eagerly awaited days came to an end.New Fraser Coast Council CEO Lisa Desmond.

Karleila Thomsen Fraceo

THE Fraser Coast Council’s first female CEO kicked up her four-inch heels yesterday as one of her most eagerly awaited days came to an end.

Former Director of Corporate Services Lisa Desmond, who has been acting chief since Andrew Brien packed up for Western Australia last year, was officially handed the top job in yesterday’s council meeting.

There were 56 applicants for the position, six of whom were short listed, but ever since the position was declared vacant Ms Desmond has been the hot favourite.

Still, the relief and joy was obvious on Ms Desmond’s face when mayor Mick Kruger re-opened the confidential section of the meeting and announced she had been the successful applicant.

When the meeting was over Ms Desmond was embraced by fellow directors Wayne Sweeney and Peter Smith and the 10 councillors present.

For almost 20 years Ms Desmond has been crunching numbers in council departments and has put together countless budgets.

While council officials have never been drawn on the exact salary the former CEO received, the position reportedly fetches about $280,000.

Ms Desmond said she was proud to be the first female to take on the role and hoped she would be a positive role model for young women in the region.

“It’s a privilege to be one of the few senior females in local government in Queensland,” Ms Desmond said.

“I hope I can live up to the expectations that go with that.”

******************************************************************

Comments to the editor of the FC chronicle

We hope that the number crunching by our newly appointed Fraser Coast Council CEO Lisa Desmond differs from days past as it did not work for this area as of late.

Are we in for more of the same or what is going to be so different.

What is she going to do that is going to change things?

Will she change things for the better prior to the next local election?

Councillors have been privy to Lisa’s arguement why she should be appointed but not us the public. So since they made the decision for us, they will have to answer to the public at the next local elections if Lisa Desmond does not deliver the goods before the election

If not , then the current councillors who supported this appointment will be facing the polls and the people.

Women are great people and they play a very important part in business & governments throughout all regions. One must however note that they now over dominate the FC councillor numbers in addition to this very important appointment.

Council records past decisions by women councillors have indictaed a support to increase development charges with  male councillors voting against increase of developers charges.[One is told]

There  are currently 7 female and 3 male FC councillors.

Is this appointment going to continue such an approach to increasing charges & squeezing dollars from developers already on the edge or moved out of the area.?

The shovel ready approach by council appears merely to be a band aid approach and has serious flaws, but sound in concept nevertheless.

The new CEO needs urgently to mean business when it comes to attracting developers back to the region as well as fast tracking applications, where jobs are at stake

What part was played in the past and or input had by the new CEO Lisa Desmond in the developers crisis that mushroomed here & is still here @ the Fraser Coast???

We elect our representatives carefully as the councillors should elect the CEO carefully.We all hope that this decision is the right one and wish her success working for the people who pay her and the Councillors. This appointment would not have been an easy task for the council, but it had to be done.

CONGRATULATIONS LISA & ALL THE BEST WITH YOUR NEW APPOINMENT

The persons from council on the appointment committe.Mick Kruger, Julie Arthur & Dave Dalgleish are competant persons and we all hope have made the right choice for the future prosperity of the region.


Our newly appointed CEO Lisa Desmond will certainly be under intense scrutiny during the following several months leading up to the next local elections.Was she just a safe bet for the councillors, better the devil you know etc., or did she present an outstanding arguement to the appointment committee

The voting public should be aware of the imbalance of sexes in council at the next local election perhaps or if happy maintain the staus quo.
