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...

Realtor’s rosy spin machine in overdrive

Lois Hunt, Broken Head. What a shock to see the full page advertisement in the Byron Shire Echo, announcing the realtor, Rose Wanchap, as a candidate for mayor.

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.

Rose: the developer’s hand maiden

Geoff Southward, Suffolk Park. Hard to know where to start regarding Rose Wanchap’s bizarre advertorial last week. Her Third-World housing price theories (just build more and the prices will drop – hey that’s certainly worked, er, nowhere) aside, the thought bubbles regarding the solar array etc for West Byron are totally beholden to the developer's intent.

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.
