       Person:  Scot Hein
    Quotation:  We absolutely did not support towers outside the focused "Safeway
                Precinct". We were instructed to put this plan (in our view based
                on thoughtful urban design best practice) in the drawer never to
                see the light of day. We were then "told" by senior management to
                prepare a maximum tower scheme which we produced under protest as
                we declared we did not support such an uninformed approach for the
                GW neighbourhood. Our next plan yielded 20 towers which was advanced
                to the decision makers (I cannot confirm who saw this plan).

                have heard you. While we have done a lot of good things very well in
                the past six years, there's also some things we haven't done
                particularly well. And for those, in particular, when I haven't met
                your expectations, I am sorry. And I know that if I'm re-elected again
                … that I can do better.
