Richard Mulcahy has realised there are wealthy people on the other side of Red Hill who need his advocacy too.
Today he’s put out a media release demanding that something be done to reduce the noise of the rescue helicopter which the Garranites must endure.
There is no relief in sight for Garran residents whose amenity is disturbed by the helicopters according to Member for Molonglo, Mr Richard Mulcahy MLA.
“This has been an issue for some time; there is no doubt that the helicopters provide a vital service, and indeed the operators deserve the praise and gratitude of the community for the fine work that they do, but if possible I believe a solution that will minimise the impact of the flights on the surrounding community should be developed.
Perhaps a moratorium on helicopter rescues for Garran residents is in order?
Mr. Mulcahy would like the helicopter pad moved to the front of the hospital, there are a lot of people living around there too. Does their lower average net worth make their noise concerns less valid?
