The Beagle Editor,
I was disappointed to discover that one of our council candidates decided he would openly disrespect the Tuross Head community by nailing up his Vote for Me signs on Hector McWilliam Drive within our Community heritage grazing lots.
Only a week ago the candidate was in the Tuross hall telling people why they should vote for him.
He sat there and listened to the distrust that the Tuross Head people have of Council who have, in the past, lied and connived to sell off the grazing lands to developers.
Instead of acknowledging and respecting that the Tuross head community have a very close connection to the heritage grazing lots that are owned by the community and were declared heritage due to the hard work of passionate residents this candidate decided he would nail his Vote for Me signs to a living tree.
He is either stupid, indifferent, or so self entitled that he believes he can
1. nail a poster to a tree - how dare he
2. flaunt the rules that say posters can not go up on Council owned land
The fellow has now been reported to the rangers and hopefully he will be fined and the poster pulled down.
What a stupid thing to do. His lack of any consideration and total disregard of the Tuross community in thinking they will warm to him because he nails his posters to living trees only serves to prove that this is the sort of person you will be voting for.
Tuross Head be warned. The cowboy with the hat is very clearly a cowboy and not worthy of your vote.
