Julie Boyd, Hastings Point, Group B Tweed council candidate

This election is crucial for residents of the Tweed. It will set the scene for the future.

Chris has a long history of representing the needs of Tweed residents, balanced with her understanding of how business can support the local environment.

I have had the honour of working with Chris for the past two decades and people of the Tweed will not regret voting her into office.
