Cr Sarah Ndiaye has been elected (rewarded with the position of) Deputy Mayor of Byron Shire. I am more than a little aghast. As Head of the Public Art Panel, she recently oversaw the expensive and very wasteful ‘disco dong’ debacle. Is the Council completely out of touch with the community? Is there no sense of propriety here or, at the very least, some little measure of embarrassment?
Looks like we urgently need to find some new faces on council for next year’s elections so the community can again have a voice. The divide at the moment is glaringly obvious.
