No more free passes to the races
I was watching the local news on New Year's night when they interviewed a bloke from Gosford Racecourse.
He said that this year Central Coast Council had not given ratepayers a free pass to the races.
As I am getting on a bit and not remembering too well, I didn't twig that was the case.
I have not been to the races for a number of years and never used the free pass.
However, it would have been nice to have had the opportunity had I wanted to go.
We, here on the Peninsula get little enough for our rates and this is just another example of penny pinching and a miserly mob.
While I was thinking about this, didn't we have the opportunity to pay our rates for the year in one go and have a chance to win a nice prize?
Seems that went by the board too.
Do we get anything at all free that we have already paid for?
