Cyclist dies two weeks after crash – Coffs Harbour

NSW Police say a man has died following a crash at Coffs Harbour earlier this month.
Thank you, Mullum residents, for last week’s Meet the Candidates, very informative – and entertaining.
Good to see a couple of Byron shire councillors get some flack after the appalling decisions they’ve inflicted on us during the last four years and encouraging to hear of some of the progressives’ plans for the future, one can only hope that our electorate has the good sense to vote for them.
It’s unfortunate that Cate Coorey’s group, Community Byron, has drawn H, but after our experience of the last four years, we can surely trust there will be no donkeys voting.
We desperately need a responsible council which will listen to residents and try to repair some of the damage done.
Jenny Coman, Bangalow
