Everyone reads The Echo!

The Echo loves your letters and is proud to provide a community forum on the issues that matter most to our readers and the people of the NSW north coast. So don’t be a passive reader, send us your epistles.

Think of the heart and soul of Mullumbimby, and what do you come up with? Santos, of course! Was that as a result of an advertising campaign over the last year or was it from three decades of goodwill generated by local people, wholesome foods, excellent customer service and loving energy? For me, it’s the latter.

Having lived in Mullumbimby for some 27 years, I’ve been a Santos shareholder for most of that time. Santos has felt like my family and a substantial part of my community.

And now? All is not well… in fact, not very nice at all. Many of the Santos staff I’ve known and loved over the years or decades have left, resigned, gone on stress leave, gone on sick leave or taken early long-service leave.

Staff morale at this level is untenable. I feel sad.

Ironically, in the Santos stairwell there is a poster with a quote and photograph of Martin Luther King Jr: ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’.
