DeeJay, Myocum. 

It is laudable that a certain councillor considers provision of a safe environment for all our residents to be a prime concern of council.

His recent interview with the Echo suggests that the reports of two sexual assaults on or near Tyagarah beach is justification to remove the clothing optional status of that beach.

Does the councillor realise that the majority of sexual assaults take place in the family home with the perpetrator being a family member?

Could the councillor’s motivations also be influenced by the potential resort development towards the end of Grey’s lane?

Why does the thought of naked people enjoying a beautiful beach as nature intended make his stomach churn?

What is your true motive councillor? What about the other recent sexual assaults in and around our shire, councillor? Should we make bathing costumes on main beach illegal as well?

I hope there is some proper debate towards this matter.

Here’s to living in a free world!
