Shows you how much attention Graeme Williams pays to what councillors really do in their role (letters, January 28). I am not pro-CSG as he claims, and if that is the only thing he can accuse me of, it’s a true indication of his non-attention to detail.
I signed every anti-CSG petition that was on offer. I was responsible for the motion that requested Dart Energy to relinquish any rights over Byron Shire (even though there is no coal seam gas in our immediate area) and got their concurrence.
Yes, I talked with Matthew Fraser prior to the federal election, and to Clive Palmer’s team, and Warren Truss, and Barnaby Joyce, and others, to ask them what would they give to Byron should they get elected. That is my job, Graeme.
And no, Graeme Williams, I am not aligned to the National Party, and the fact that Alan Hunter was asked to join the team was due to his love of Byron, love and knowledge of the farming community, and his capacity to engage with the community. And perhaps, Graeme, many people were disenfranchised with the previous Green majority, and were willing to fund an alternative.
Get your facts right before you put pen to paper.
Byron Shire councillor Diane Woods, Brunswick Heads
