Man dead after Lismore stabbing

NSW Police say a man has died, and two others have been injured, following a stabbing in Lismore overnight.

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.

  1. I agree. Why is that happening. I’d also like some answers as to why the women’s center a vital service was closed down before any other service was put in place as has been stated would be.
    She voted against this motion too and this woman is a lawyer for elder abuse.
    I truly don’t get where she is coming from.
