1 Candidate details

Name: Cath Lynch

Council: Tweed Shire Council

Town/city: Cabarita Beach/Bogangar

Number of years in shire/LGA: 13 years

Current councillor? No

Clubs/sports/interests: Cabarita Sports Club, Cabarita Beach Women’s Bowling Club, Cabarita Beach/Bogangar Residents’Assoc Inc, reading, local government issues, current affairs

Are you a member of a political party or an organised ‘ticket’? NO

Brief description:  Retired to Tweed Shire in 1999 after 35 years as sec/admin assistant. Tertiary qualifications in Business Management and Marketing. Member of executive of Cabarita Beach/Bogangar Residents’ Association for 11 years as treasurer, secretary and president.

2 What has motivated you to stand?

Feel I have experience to contribute to local government in a constructive way. Also to ensure our council is seen to be functioning openly – less ‘in confidence’ business and opening up its dealings to public scrutiny.

3 What is your vision for the shire/LGA?

To ensure the protection of our unique environment while at the same time working with residents toward a sustainable and thriving business community providing real jobs for present and future generations.

4 In your opinion, how can council best balance the need for further residential development with the need to preserve the local environment?

By working together as a team with our unique communities to achieve this vision and being proactive in exploring new opportunities to fulfil the expectations of the shire’s residents.

5 What particular issues do you feel strongly about?

Preservation of our coastal foreshores and the fostering of activities that will lead to the strengthening of individual communities and the shire as a whole. Residents have always expressed the wish to be consulted and to be a part of the process, not being presented with proposals into which they have had no input and therefore have no sense of ownership.

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.
