As election time approaches, it’s time to consider your vote.

On top of our excellent election coverage of all four shires, which continues in Echonetdaily today, we are pleased to be presenting two meet-the-candidates forums for Byron Shire voters in conjunction with the Byron Echo.

The first will be at the Mullumbimby Services Club on Wednesday August 29 from 7pm. The facilitator will be former Northern Star editor, Russell Eldridge.

The second forum will be at the Byron Community Centre on Monday September 3 from 6pm. The facilitator will be ABC journalist Mick O’Reagan.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
