Cr Darlene Cook: ‘working to restore accountability and trust in our Council’

Current Lismore Councillor Darlene Cook has served one term on Lismore Council and at the December LGA election, she plans to run for Mayor.

Residents of Lismore and surrounds marched to Kevin Hogan’s Lismore office yesterday to deliver their ‘Stop Adani’ message. Photo supplied.

Lismore locals delivered a Christmas card and cake to their local MPs office yesterday to let Kevin Hogan know that ‘all we want for Christmas is to Stop Adani’. More than 30 locals showed their support for the ’Stop Adani’ message waving colourful flags, banners and posters and also delivered 400 surveys about the giant Adani coal mine.

The survey results showed overwhelming opposition to the Adani coal mine and strong support for a shift to renewable energy. Residents also agreed that Kevin Hogan should publicly oppose Adani and that our local region should be an Adani Free Zone.

Tom Driftwood of the local group Stop Adani Lismore said that the survey results showed overwhelming opposition to the Adani coal mine and strong support for a shift to renewable energy. ‘From past and current surveys of local residents as well as the vote against CSG where 87 per cent voted “No” it is clear residents of Page oppose fossil fuels in all their forms and support a shift to renewable energy.

‘It is long past time for Kevin Hogan to do his job and represent the views of his electorate by opposing fossil fuels an all their forms and acting to “Stop Adani” instead of working for the interests of giant foreign corporations.’

Residents also agreed that Kevin Hogan should publicly oppose Adani and that our local region should be an Adani Free Zone.

‘We are putting Kevin Hogan on notice that we will not stop until Adani is dead and buried and we are shifting rapidly to a clean, jobs rich renewable energy economy,’ concluded Mr Driftwood.
