Goulburn Mulwaree Council Chambers

Readers might recall that there was an attempt by the general manager of Goulburn Mulwaree Council only a few years ago to replace the Goulburn Post with a council funded newspaper, which I fiercely opposed. The attempt failed by only one vote and both the former and current mayor were not among those who voted for my motion. I made the point that a local newspaper should always be supported for its independent voice and to assist in employment in a country town.
