Mandy for Richmond: ‘I’m there to break things’

I am deeply curious about whether Mandy Nolan can unseat Labor’s Justine Elliot and win Richmond for the Greens in Saturday’s election.

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$.
