DERWENT Valley Councillors lost another opportunity to lobby Premier David Bartlett when both he and Opposition Leader Will Hodgman opted out of today's general meeting of the Local Government Association. Held at the Brighton Civic Centre at Bridgewater, the gathering of councils was expecting to be addressed by Mr Hodgman at 10.15am and Mr Bartlett at 2.30pm. Instead, they heard from Rene Hidding and David Llewellyn. The only leader to keep his appointment was Nick McKim, despite having his party's election campaign launch today as well.
