Entertainment in the Byron Shire and beyond for the week beginning 3 March, 2021

Tom Tabart, of all people, should know when a person is elected mayor of a shire he is there to represent and be accountable to all residents of that shire, not just Tom Tabart.

He must approach every matter before Council with an open mind and remember he is representing all residents of the shire. There are all different colours out there as well as green and he certainly is not there to carry out Tom Tabart’s wishes and instructions.

What arrogance expecting the mayor to consult with him on any Council matter.
