Ken Smith it seems is a man of contradictions. I was sure he would be clapping his hands with glee at more development in his Bass electorate with the announcement of more coal and seam exploration. But he said no!; Strange considering::
- -He is a climate change 'Agnostic'
- -Supported the building and re-zoning development in Ventnor against community and council wishes.
- There is coal in the Bass electorate. Wonthaggi was built on it.
My conclusion: some alarm bell maybe ringing for him, he has had a bit of bad publicity locally lately.
(Ken is also said 'no' to a hospital in Phillip Island, a population 10-12 thousands during winter 70 thousand during peak tourist times.)
