Farewell Geoff Young. You'll be Missed.
I'm very sad to hear that Geoff Young won't be running for Victoria Council again. Geoff had truly become the rare voice of reason on the council. Having a strong sense of integrity, he frequently voted alone against a populist majority and thus made wise and principled moves in doing so.
He demonstrated that truth could still exist in the face of the prevailing political winds. Unfortunately the majority ruled the day time and again. Victoria has shown itself to be in a downward spiral over the last decade as a result.
Thanks Geoff for providing a beacon of hope for a return to sanity for the city.
May your example not be forgotten.
