Stories about "Rose Wanchap":

Rose didn’t jump, she was pushed

Doug Luke, Byron Bay.  Congratulations, Byron Greens! I was secretary of Byron Greens at the time when Rose Wanchap ceased to be a member. Not long after...

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

Wanchap again called on to do the right thing: quit

Jan Hackett, Byron Bay. Dear Rose: In last week’s Byron Echo you took out a full page ad to justify your moral right to remain on Council after breaking the trust of the majority of the community who voted for you, longterm ratepayers who treasure our sensitive ecosystem, our threatened infrastructure and our quality of life in general.

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.
