After reading through the minutes of all the ordinary Tweed Shire Council meetings this year (on council’s website) I find that Cr Carolyn Byrne has voted against accepting Gary Bagnall’s mayoral minutes every month since January (seven times).
It is standard procedure for councillors to accept the mayoral minutes (which are most likely vetted by staff) and I can’t find any other instances from the past where the mayoral minutes were rejected by a councillor.
I would like to publicly ask Cr Byrne why is she doing this? Many of us in the community are baffled by her voting patterns.
