Margaret Spalding passes away

By johnboy - 24 March 2009 45

The ABC’s 666 is reporting that Margaret Spalding, the litigious CEO of Koomarri and architect of the Narrabundah Longstay Caravan Park debacle, was recalled to the almighty yesterday.

Cause of death is unknown, described as sudden.

Condolences go to her family and friends.

John Mackay on 666 is claiming he was responsible for the caravan park business, and yes, she was a saint.

(Oh, and none of them had any idea what Consolidated Builders were going to do with the site, honest)

UPDATED: The Canberra Times has a short note, with a promise of more reporting tomorrow.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Chief Minister Stanhope has made a lengthy statement of condolence.

She had suffered for years from some quite significant health problems, which may have contributed to her state of health, according to reports in CT. Better we speculate about what’s better documented.

Speculation does nobody any good when it is about a death.
