Opinion: United Hunter Valley voice will foster progress

As a region we have also proven, over a very long time, that we can achieve great things when we join together for a common purpose.

The Committee for the Hunter, under chair Richard Anicich, is no different and is a body that can achieve great things. The Property Council chooses to be part of the Committee for the Hunter in the belief that progress that can be made towards innovative solutions to our region’s challenges.

The Committee for the Hunter is not a politically driven organisation and will operate through a broad stakeholder network and a strong governance model.
As a community, we are better to step forward and provide a united voice, rather than stand still and be limited by past experiences.

What we can be certain of is that if we don’t move forward, then nothing will change. That is not the Hunter way.
