Mr Ashley Baldry, Bogangar

I have surveyed all lead candidates in the Tweed Shire Council election, and I would like to share my assessment of the best way to vote ‘NO’ to a caravan park on environmentally sensitive beachfront land at Cabarita Beach/Bogangar this Saturday.

Top Five Groups (in order on ballot) are:
Group E – Barry Longland
Group G – Michael Armstrong
Group H – Katie Milne
Group K – Eddie Roberts
Group L – Gary Bagnall.

Using the ‘How to Vote’ information from any of these candidates will ensure that your vote (and preferences) will go in the right direction.
