Lismore Councillor candidate bios – Group A: Labor

The Echo asked all the Lismore election Councillor candidates to send in a bio. First cab off the rank was current Councillor Darlene Cook and Group A.

The Tweed Shire Council election is just around the corner (September 10) which means the opportunity to elect even more ‘progressive’ Councilors is critical.

I am a mature voter from Murwillumbah who, along with thousands of others in the Tweed supports our mayor, Katie Milne and the unique Greens’ principles which only enhance and protect the future of the Tweed region, its people and the environment.

Katie Milne has a proven track record in council over eight years of introducing many strategies to protect us from the Gold Coast style over development, sell offs to the big developers who feed the conservative side of council and Katie’s unrepentant approach to protect and promote local industries, ecotourism and our ever decreasing natural environment.

In this age of excessive climate heating, deforestation, pollution and loss of species bio-diversity, the good news is that if we all take action locally we can make a very significant difference to our situation.

First we must elect people who will make positive change to protect all that is important in our lives.

To continue doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results is a fanciful notion.

I for one will be supporting Katie Milne and any other progressive thinker in council as it is time for action and protection of  our wondrous Tweed shire.

Andrew Bennett, Murwillumbah

  1. Well, August 1 the horse’s birthday has come and gone and I am biting at the bit to throw a shoe to get into harness in a team for Tweed Council with the rest of the horses with Mayor Katie Milne to keep the donkeys out from raisng rates for the people who can’t afford rising rates.
    Remember 1954 when Risng Fast won the cup. Well this September 10 it is about picking seven bright sparks in a gallop poll and rounding the turn and giving them a bolt as horses need to be bolted. Just say “when”
    I am a media man Andrew, a rider of writing and my pen is sharp and just looking for a winning post..
    Life is like a box of chocolates.
