I would like to respond to Cr Diane Woods’s very unpleasant letter regarding the Greens (Echonetdaily, January 22). As secretary of the Byron Greens at the time of the council elections and a long-term fundraiser, I find her hostility and accusations offensive.
I can assure her that no glass is shattering anywhere. Assertions about ‘brigades of environmental and lobby groups’ shovelling buckets of money our way is a total fantasy. As noted also in the last edition of The Echo our modest campaign funds and our expenses were far fewer that hers.
The point she is trying to make about Tom and Cath Mooney and the mayor’s opposition to further alcohol outlets in town is beyond me. If Diane brings the same sort of logic and prejudice to our council deliberations then maybe the community has cause for concern.
