Interview with Mell and Zara from the Byron Comedy Fest

After a year under a COVID-19 hiatus, The Byron Comedy Fest is back! Next Thursday sees this fledgling event open the doors to its second weekend presenting all that is fabulous and funny. Set on the Byron beachfront at the Byron Surf Club and styled as a classy bespoke beachside speakeasy, this event is the creative lovechild of besties Zara Noruzi and Mell Coppin.

It has come to my attention that Byron Shire needs a new mayor. A mayor who has the political savvy and courage to take on the bureaucracy.

To stand up for Byron’s unique culture instead of its rampant overcommercialisation.

One man has these qualification$: Fast Buck$.

Fast Buck$ has stood up to:

1. a fake Bond corrupt development at the cost of a shortened life contract, fought vs Club Med, protected Broken Head, etc

2. saved Byron from a max eastcosting general manager who was sending Byron broke

3. one who takes on the tuckerbox raging and Ian Cohen has called Buck$ the ‘Ralph Nader of the north coast’

4. Who can deliver Byron a general manager and staff who will do the bidding of its elected councillors.

You know this former councillor from his pink papers, car signs, court cases and council reporting in his weekly column in the Echo’s letter pages.

Buck$ says, ‘All this has nothing to do with greenies versus rednecks; it is about installing an administration that has confidence and integrity, and which looks after all ratepayers, not just well-connected developers’.

So for Anonymous and the Occupy movement, vote #1 for Mayor FAST BUCK$.
