Mr Stott says that he has trained as a social worker and journalist, has lived locally for 35 years and has been on a multitude of committees.
Mr Stott says, ‘This election is crucial to preserve our beautiful district. Local issues include affordable housing, unemployment, drug addiction, drunkenness in the Bay, the need for Ballina dredging, danger of coastal koala extinction, bad health effects of microwave mobile phone towers, threats by wealthy developers.’
Mr Stotts asks that people voting number 1 for him pass on the full strength of the vote by ‘passing on preferences to other candidates you favour’. ‘We urgently need a change’, he says.
