Wanchap and her detractors stand for election

The bete noire of Byron Shire politics, Greens defector and realtor Rose Wanchap, has announced she will contest the upcoming council elections. But one of her chief detractors, Bryon Residents Group president Cate Coorey, has also announced she will run.

The immaculate Rose deception

Lorissa Barrett, Ewingsdale. Thank you Rose for your one-sided advertisement. The community you represent did not vote you in as an independent, they voted for you as a representative of the Greens, by voting above the line they voted for a party and the policies of that party.

Byron goes West as Rose touts for the big developer

Rose: the developer’s hand maiden

Rose and her faction all for clearing koala habitat

Yvette Steinhauer, Byron Bay. I note the calls for Byron shire councillor Rose Wanchap to resign. I agree she has hijacked democracy in this shire. I am particularly aggrieved by her voting at the last council meeting to knock back the Council’s Koala Plan of Management.

Wanchap must listen to the community

Suzie Deyris, Byron Bay. Anything I can do that might reach Rose Wanchap and convince her to stand down or for re-election (at least), I feel I must do, for this town and community I love.

Tasteful, reasonable and useful? Or noisy, oversized and intrusive? This is the question at the heart of the debate over a light industrial development that has been proposed for the heart of Federal.
