So Tweed shire councillor Carolyn Byrne has demanded a police investigation because, it seems, she may have been called a cow.
Is she serious? Is she so self-centred that she would drag an already stretched police force off its legitimate work of protecting our community just to massage her bruised ego? She’s been watching too much Judge Judy.
I’d have more credibility demanding an investigation of the hygiene of the council chamber. After all the frothing at the mouth and the Tweed’s biggest ever dummy spit would have left the chamber needing a good scrub.
Those people objecting to the mayoral election result should remember that the progressive team gained the majority of votes at the last council election.
Normally they would retain the mayoralty for the current council’s term. One of the progressives had to resign because of a family illness. The people who voted for him should not be treated as if they now don’t exist. Justice prevailed when the conservatives tried to cynically exploit this sad event.
I would urge the Polglase group to get on with representing their constituents and not waste their time with the disruptive behaviour that has been prevalent in council, when councillors they don’t like are voted in as mayor.
