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. Eve, this person is just a divisive meddler and deserves no attention, at all. Thank you for providing this space to see what candidates have to say. Some of them live in fairyland and will learn a hard lesson if they get voted in! Some very primitive thinking amongst some of the newbies!!!

    • Hi Charles, I think it’s only fair to give all candidates the same opportunity – that way no one can say they have been hobbled. I am just publishing their responses. If I didn’t ask everyone, you can be sure folk would jump up and down and carry on. This way, the candidates get to show their true colours (and pizza tastes) and they can either build their own platforms or dig their own graves.

      cheers, Eve
