Sickof the whinging please..

December 7th, 2012

I couldn’t resist popping this comment on Facebook in response to the negative comments about the new Cultural Centre in Hervey Bay…

Craig it seems to me that Maryborough residents are absolutely happy to expect Hervey Bay residents, at last count double the number that reside in Maryborough, to drive to Maryborough for things.. But if Hervey Bay residents dare mention that Maryborough people could just possibly drive to Hervey Bay for some services… Well all hell breaks loose! When Hervey Bay has over 100k residents and Maryborough less than half that number I wonder if that will still be the case? I am a proud Hervey Bay resident. I adore Hervey Bay and I also appreciate everything that Maryborough has to offer. Maryborough is a fantastic place..and I visit constantly but I just much prefer the coastal lifestyle! Please don’t keep bagging us! Hervey Bay ratepayers are supporting the region. This is a fact. Hervey Bay deserves to be able to grow and requires services to support that growth. I for one, do not desire to drive to Maryborough for everything. I desire my services, my cultural, sporting, retail and health and education services to be right here where the population lives! Just like every other decent sized city!
