  1. Dean, my first question where do you stand on the CCS .
    Do you have the balls to kick this to the curb.

      1. But where do you stand personally? Providing a website is surely passing the buck. I want a prospective mayor to tell us specifically where you stand, for or against and why?

  2. On the face of it, Mr Evers as a mayoral candidate looks apposite, strong, competent, highly desirable and formidable.

    Unfortunately, the question has to be posed to you, Dean, as it would to all the candidates, as follows.

    Given council management was (and will continue) advising councillors that: An independent economic assessment identified a host of benefits to the CBD, including a variety of financial benefits over a 30 year period totalling $57 million. And given that the ICAC weighs “perception of conflict of interest” heavily. And given that a mayor oversees the general manager in day to day matters, how would you deal with the “non-pecuniary interest” declaration by Clr. Adendorff?

    I note particularly in relation to this that you wish to restore trust in government. The ICAC weighs perception of conflict of interest heavily because of this very same concern: public trust.

    Had you been mayor when these declarations were first submitted, what role do you feel you would have played and how would you have handled the situation?
