LONG-term WEB critic Senator Ben Shenton has put himself up for a seat on the board to have a look behind the scenes of the Waterfront plans.
The Senator says that the Waterfront Enterprise Board are short of a chairman and a member, and have one States director who has just lost her seat in the House. And he says that instead of being railroaded into an ‘urgent’ appointment, as the States were with the appointment of sacked chairman Gerald Voisin, ministers seem happy to let the board limp on.
Senator Shenton’s proposition would see him appointed to the board until the end of March. But he said that if Members wanted him to stay on, he would do so.
‘To be honest, if WEB was an animal you would probably shoot it to put it out of its misery,’ he said. ‘An appointment until the end of March is long enough to have a look through the records. But if they want to put me forward for a longer term, I would take it.’
