Dry July to help you and Our House

Will Byron become the Malibu of the antipodes?

Here’s another reason for millennials to be marching on the street. We found out last week that on census day 2021, 15 per cent of the dwellings in the Byron Shire were unoccupied (2,348 places to be precise). That figure was 30 per cent in Byron Bay itself, three times the national average. 

The sitting member for Richmond, Labor’s Justine Elliott, is aptly named because, as far as I have seen, that’s all she’s done for the past 16 years – sit.

Have you ever clapped eyes on her or heard her speak up for us in Parliament? That’s why I’m voting for Mandy Nolan because I know she will truly represent the people of this electorate. Supine, immobile and invisible she won’t be.

Vote for Mandy and action on climate change and don’t bother to go looking for Labor’s policy on this because they don’t have one. Chuck the lot of them out and bring back hope and integrity.

 

Diane Hart, Mullumbimby
