Farewell Councillor Basil Cameron, you have served the people of Byron Shire as a true Independent. Thirteen years is a long time to be a councillor, especially with your level of dedication across a broad spectrum, including transport and cycleways, economic recovery and banning coal seam gas in the Shire.

With your personal integrity, impeccable research and priority for social justice and environmental protection, you are a model for all the aspiring candidates who seek to follow in your footsteps on 4 December.

On behalf of The Greens, thank you, and we wish you all the best for your retirement.

Duncan Dey and The Greens
