Hon. George Souris, MP has written a detailed letter, thanking me for my concerns. He states:
"Destination NSW has confirmed that the South Coast Regional Tourism Organisation is no longer using the collateral and that all outdoor advertising displaying it has been removed.
Following the concerns you have brought to my attention, I have instructed Destination NSW to work with all campaign stakeholders to carry out a review of the creative collateral developed for this campaign and to take your comments into consideration during this process; as well as the specific concerns you have raised in the creation of any new campaigns."
Thank you to all petition signers. It goes to show with continued effort and considered replies, public opinion can change not just one Ad campaign, but all future campaigns by this government.
