The freedom of the press still furnishes that check upon government which no constitution has ever been able to provide – Chicago Tribune.

Ex-mayor fails in tilt for Assembly seat


Former mayor Damien Ryan (pictured) has been unsuccessful in his tilt at Territory politics for the CLP, failing to unseat the Territory Alliance MLA in Araluen, Robyn Lambley, by 42 votes.

In Namatjira the margin was even closer, with the CLP’s Bill Yan taking the electorate from Labor by a mere 22 seats.

Labor had fielded Sheralee Taylor when Chansey Paech moved west to Gwoja which he won outright with 1612 votes, with the CLP’s Philip Alice at 702 votes and the Federation Party’s Kenny Lechleitner at at 344.

Mr Ryan is tight-lipped about returning to local government where Jamie de Brenni has taken the top job.

  1. Ryan and his silver tailed ignorant mates sat back and watched our town be destroyed and then capped it off by destroying our real cultural heritage at Anzac Hill High which should have been restored and reused as intended back in 1952, in conjunction with another 90 day wonder from Melbourne who copped her marching orders promptly also. Cheats never prosper, and never will. Thank Christ.

  2. Clearly doesn’t want to work with the NTG, only against them. We would have the gallery by now if it wasn’t for Damien Ryan.
