Report and recommendations – First Nations people in custody

High, but not high enough, on the country's human rights agenda is the issue of Aboriginal deaths in custody.
I read that Cr Rose Wanchap has resigned from the Greens which makes sense. However as she was elected on a Greens’ ticket, should she not also resign from council?
Most people who voted for Rose did so because of the way she presented herself, i.e. as a Greens’ member who could be expected to adhere to at least major Green policies and values and vote accordingly.
This hasn’t happened and if Rose is serious about retaining some integrity in the eyes of voters – and even in her own – clearly she should resign from Council as a Green and, if she wishes, stand again as an Independent.

  1. Agree wholeheartedly! Rose is not representing the electorate who voted her in on the green ticket and should resign from Council as well.
