Thank you Rose for your one-sided advertisement,

‘People generally do not vote below the line’ is exactly the point. You do not have a mandate to make these decisions.

The community you represent did not vote you in as an independent, they voted for you as a representative of the Greens, by voting above the line they voted for a party and the policies of that party.

You have deceived the community by positioning yourself on council through the Greens ticket and then continually voting against the party on incredibly significant decisions such as West Byron, the Ewingsdale Development and the Belongil rock wall.

Of course there is outrage.

Perhaps you could follow the practice of most politicians when they have a point to make; participate in interviews with actual journalists, engage in dialogue and allow people to respond to your claims, rather than take out these advertisements that present your personal point of view and say very little for your integrity or your credibility.

Lorissa Barrett, Ewingsdale
