Climate change a threat to local Gondwana rainforest mountain frogs

A new Southern Cross University study predicts that two species of mountain frogs located on the NSW/Queensland border are on track to be extinct by 2055.

Both as a Tweed Shire councillor and privately, I have been involved in promoting cancer treatment and in raising funds for and promoting the Cancer Council.

Last year I shaved my head as a fund raising event at the Tweed Valley Relay for Life. This has become even more poignant given that my family is currently dealing with ongoing cancer treatment.

As I announced at the meeting of the Tweed Shire Council in December 2014, I am in a position where I need to take extended time away from the Tweed in the first part of 2015 to provide assistance and care for my family while my father undergoes radiation treatment and regains his strength.

As my father’s treatment finishes this week, it will not be possible for me to return to the Tweed in time for the February Tweed Shire Council meeting on 19 February.

This has been an extremely difficult and trying time for my family.

While it will be necessary for me to continue to provide support and assistance to my family, I will continue to fulfill my obligations as a Tweed Shire councillor.

Although I will be dividing my time between Coonabarabran where my parents reside and fulfilling my duties as a Tweed Shire councillor, I continue to be available to provide assistance and advocacy for all Tweed residents either by telephone or email. These details are available through the Tweed Shire Council website.
