I’ve been saddened by the repeated Greens council bashing by The Echo recently. but then after reading Ian Cohen’s opinion piece I realised The Echo is mounting a political campaign to unseat the current progressive Greens. They have allowed some improvements by development and replaced the ‘Do Nothing’ Greens who presided over the decline of the Shire.
Thank them for the state of the roads, a bankrupt council fighting un-winnable court cases, and unable to maintain our services.
The council-approved bypass is something that will probably improve the life of residents wanting to travel across town: the locals who live and work here, not the tourists. By bypassing the shopping precinct and getting traffic out of this popular area it will improve amenity for everyone.
The Echo and the former do-nothing Greens (on whose watch the Byron at Byron on wetlands was approved) oppose this bypass because a strip of green land through the town will be developed.
Don’t fall for the propaganda from The Echo; Byron life is improving for the majority by this realistic Greens council working hard to improve things but still opposing and winning against unreasonable developments like West Byron.
Thank you, councillors.
