In his local newspapers’ political ads Phill Youngblutt declares himself a proud Tweed National. Yet in the Tweed Link, the council newsletter, and on the ballot paper he is listed as ‘independent’. This demonstrates confusion or duplicity or both.
It echoes the last council election, when he scored all of one per cent of the vote as part of the so-called ‘Balance Team’.
His behaviour towards other councillors in the chamber and his ‘morons’ comments in the media show anything but balance.
His non-attendance at all but two meet-the-candidate events indicates his unwillingness to engage with the greater community to hear their concerns.
Councillor Youngblutt’s record is there in the council meetings section of the TSC website for all to see. There is no evidence that he is capable of working co-operatively in the best interests of Tweed Shire residents. We deserve far better.
