Cairns Mayor under sustained attack from political overlords
Letter to the Editor
An elite group of political overlords continues their unsubstantiated attack on the Cairns mayor.
In a desperate and sustained attempt to discredit the mayor a vile, festering gang has scored a brilliant goal exposing the hypocrisy within.
Davies just happens to be the right hand man in the office of LNP’s Federal member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch Next around the table Is former division five councillor Richie Bates who lost at the last election to a Manning Unity team candidate.
It well known Bates is still licking his wounds after he was flogged in 2020 but at the 2016 election Bates was elected as a Unity ticket member under a wave of support for the Manning lead Unity team.
Bates currently works in state Labor MP for Cairns Michael Healy‘s office.
Bates was also MC at Calcino’s 2019 wedding.
The only one missing from this cozy dinner Is Warren’s heir apparent, councilor Brett Olds who is also working one day a week in Warren Entsch’s office.
Brett Olds is also the beneficiary of the sustained attacks on Mayor Bob Manning no doubt written by Chris Calcino.
Olds is regularly featuring in the attacks and is pre-loaded with his rabid talking points, no doubt cooked up in the anti-Mayor Manning think tank being run from Warren Entsch’s office.
This ladies and gentlemen is how the political elites collude to destroy anyone who isn’t in on their grubby racket.
Regardless of what people think of the mayor it is bleedingly obvious that the Calcino hit job articles are repeatedly trying frame the mayor as conspiring with land developers.
When the real concern for the community is the blatant collusion that’s going on is among these political grubs and Calcino pumping out their garbage in the Cairns post.
Manning obviously is held in great regard by many people in town. Some of which came to his aid, as real friends do when the chips are down.
But fat chance the slimy reporting would promote that Australian spirit of helping out your mates.
The pathetic reporting by Calcino and his henchmen fails miserably to report the facts that the Manning’s family business went south whilst the Mayor’s wife was struggling through aggressive breast cancer but Calcino ignores that reality and instead kicks them fair in the guts while they are down.
One thing is for sure, this rabble of political elites would struggle to find a mate to even buy them a coffee when their chips were down and the people of Cairns would struggle to think of a single thing any of this lot have contributed to the region.
