Tom Carney can be Canberra’s Youth Ambassador. He has impeccable binge and drive credentials. Perhaps he should really represent Australia.

He seems like a decent fellow….but I once saw him in pink cowboy boots at a Kylie exhibition.

Now I feel sorry I said those things about him!! He sounds like my sort of guy (not in the biblical sense, I hasten to add).

So who would you have picked for Canberran of the year?

That said, I reckon he’s done a good job at ActewAGL. But others might see that differently too.

Just a lifelong sycophant, as I understand it.

When he was in the APS, he was one of those about whom it was said the most dangerous place to stand is between him and a senior executive’s backside.
