Many thanks to the 2700 people who signed the petition. The petition was given to The Yankalilla District Council's CEO at the public meeting (2nd March 2005).
Copies of the petition (above) and the newer petition were given to the Hon. Patrick Conlon (Minister for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure) at the stakeholders' meeting on the 22nd September 2005. Over 5000 signatures in total were collected.
We cannot save the jetty alone. We need your help!
It is vital to the future of Rapid Bay Jetty that you write to the Premier, The Hon. Mike Rann, MP, and the Minister for Transport, the Hon. Patrick Conlon, MP, expressing your opinions, concerns and visions for the Rapid Bay area and in particular, the Rapid Bay Jetty.
Address your letters asking for the restoration and development of this invaluable State asset to:
The Hon. Mike Rann, MP,
The Hon. Patrick Conlon, MP,
If you could e-mail us contact us (preferably via e-mail) to let us know that you've sent them, we'd really appreciate it!
There will be other things that we'll need your help with in the future, so please be sure to join our mailing list so that we have a means of contacting you.
If you've written to the above MPs, and your pen is warmed up, please also send letters to the editor of your favourite paper. Letters to the editor should not be underestimated, as they are often used by government as a 'barometer' of community opinion.
