A MEETING of Derwent Valley Councillors was told last night that Premier David Bartlett's New Norfolk visit was confirmed only 15 minutes prior to last Sunday's non-appearance at the New Norfolk District Football Club. Mayor Martyn Evans said the visit had been confirmed by the office of Derwent MLC and state treasurer Michael Aird. No word had been received to explain why the premier had not turned up.
Mayor Evans said he was still hopeful of meeting Mr Bartlett prior to next fortnight's State Election, in order to impress upon the premier the many pressing needs of the Derwent Valley.
