Public meeting re the Kangaloon Aquifer

The Member for the Southern Highlands, (Ms Peta Seaton), and Mrs Joanna Gash, Federal Member for Gilmore have called a public meeting to consider the Kangaloon Aquifer issue. The meeting will be on Saturday, 4 March at 12:30 pm.

It is a public meeting, so feel free to let everybody know who is likely to be interested. Local farmers would be likely to have a special interest in this matter. So, if you know any of them ....

Here is the text of an email I received from Peta Seaton's Electorate Officer, advising me of the meeting. Incidentally, this meeting has apparently been planned for some time. It just has not been widely publicised, for reasons which puzzle me.

Dear Mr Wilson

Thank you for your email.

For your information Peta Seaton and Joanna Gash have convened a public
meeting at Robertson School of the Arts, this Saturday March 4th at
12.30 - 2pm.

I am lead to believe that Matt Brown will also attend the


There has been considerable feedback from the community on this


yours sincerely

Rebecca Reid,

Office of Peta Seaton MP

As far as I am aware, this will be a real information meeting, (with an opportunity to hear from the floor as well as to hear presentations of some research which has been undertaken already). To the best of my knowledge, it is not envisioned as a "protest meeting". After our recent experiences at the School of Arts, I think that is an important distinction to make.

Protest meetings may well be necessary later on. I feel this campaign might be a long-term matter.
