Leigh Rees, Brunswick Heads.

I have been working with people who have been researching the activities of the NSW Crown Trust in Brunswick Heads for 20 years. Unlike the Trust, their information has been impeccable.

Can you imagine my disappointment in hearing the ‘Green’ mayor and Cr Ndiaye refer to the residents of Brunswick Heads as ‘not knowing all the facts’ and pushing a narrow agenda!

All we wanted was fair and genuine community consultation. Apparently, this is an outrageous request. Now let’s see if the Trust honours its promises including the one about our caravan parks never being privatised. Watch this space.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Sorry Leigh, the Greens not knowing all the facts and pushing a narrow agenda absolutely defines their movement. I know “Ignorance is Bliss” but the Greens have assumed its a biblical “commandment” not a light hearted suggestion.

  2. The Greens supporters need to remember this situation at the next local election + vote for Labors Spooner who has voted against Richardson + his Green colleagues on this topic!
