John Tingiri, Mornington Victoria

Being a regular visitor to Byron Bay over a number of years, it amazes me that the elected ‘Green’ councillors and those seeking election under the Greens banner continue to support head-in-the-sand policies.

They continually promote policies that everyone knows are unsustainable, costly and will never see fruition. They are a self-centred group, not interested in progressing Byron Shire to the benefit of the whole community.

It would be a retrograde step for this shire if Simon Richardson were elected mayor and the Greens were to hold the balance of power.

Byron Bay residents deserve better than this.
