Tweed Shire councillor Warren Polglase recently stated in a near full page newspaper article that ‘The first impression of the Tweed Shire looks daggy. Visitors will just drive on, they won’t want to come near it because it looks so bad’.
These comments were made by the councillor together with a plea for the planting of more trees in the Tweed Shire entry. The councillor’s epiphany to plant trees was very short lived, when at the recent meeting he voted against planting large amounts of trees and beautifying the entry to the Tweed Valley Way.
The only conclusion to be reached from the Polglase change of mind is that the motion to plant trees came from the progressive side of Council and not from himself or his cronies. If Cr Polglase is truly in favour of beautifying, planting more trees and greening the entry to the Tweed Shire he should stop merely talking about it in the newspaper and vote for it in council where it matters.
