Promoting and working for appropriate development in the Tweed Valley and the broader Northern Rivers of NSW
WELCOME! Please join us in our work for a sustainable Northern Rivers.
With the Tweed Shire Council Elections fast approaching we are putting a call out to all members for volunteers to help out at Pre Poll venues and also on Election Day.
Pre Poll is from 23rd August to 3rd September. probably at three locations: two in Tweed Heads and one in Murwillumbah. Pre Poll is very important!. In the last elections, candidates got up to 40% of their primary vote before polling day. We need to cover this period!
Polling day is .Saturday 4th September. and we are hoping to cover some polling stations to support the ‘progressive candidates’ who may need our assistance.So if you can help out at Pre Polling and/or on Election Day, please get back to us and say where you would like to campaign. Just respond to this email, firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll contact you.
This Election is important and we want to do as much as we can to protect the Tweed from the ‘bad actors’. The result could depend on you!
Good afternoon. We’ve recently become aware some of your members may
be involved in protest actions regarding the Cape Byron Power
There seems to have been a fair degree of confusion regarding the work
we undertake and there are a few key points we’d like to clarify:
• Cape Byron Power Company produces clean, renewable electricity
from mostly sugar cane milling waste, along with certain types of wood
residues and energy crops, commonly referred to as ‘biomass’ fuel.
• The energy produced by our power stations is 100% compliant with
State, Federal and United Nations guidelines for renewable energy
• All of Cape Byron Power fuel sources are 100% federally accredited
renewable energy fuel sources that comply with Australia’s United
Nations’ obligations under the Kyoto Protocol and Paris Accord.
• Cape Byron Power does not source any native timber directly from
state forests or private native forest.
Further information is also available on our website
www.capebyronpower.com . We hope this information clarifies some of
the issues your members may have raised and can help in bringing an
end to some of the misinformation in the public arena. However, if you
or your members have any additional concerns, we would be more than
happy to meet with you to talk through them.
