Paul Taylor, Murwillumbah

Warren Polglase has a plan for Tweed, or as his election paraphernalia declares: ‘I will fix roads, I’ll minimise rate rises and I’ll help create jobs for everyone’.

What utter bullshit and drivel, Wozza. Why on Earth have you failed to deliver on any of these initiatives in your last three terms in office?

Sorry, mate, but you are a dud, as is your buddy Phil, the human headline.

All you both managed to do in recent memory was to join the ex-general managers conga line of arse-lickers (sorry, Mr Latham) and secure a motor-racing event that divided the community and left us with a large debt to pay off.

You both continue to ignore the expert advice that has deemed it unnecessary for a dam to be constructed at Byrrill Creek, but somehow you think you know best.

We want representatives that treat us with respect and are at least willing to listen to community concerns, not the opposite.

Let’s preserve the Tweed – for now and forever, and promote sustainability.

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.


  1. I could have put it better myself. Polglase’s spruiking on things he has never bothered about in the past needs to be driven home to the electorate.
