AN online poll captured the attention of Tweed Daily News readers last week.

We asked you to vote for the best- and worst-performing councillor, and the all-important question, who you thought should be mayor.

In the 24 hours the polls were open more than 800 votes were cast, and in the days since, more than 50 comments have been added to the related stories.

According to the votes, Katie Milne was the most popular councillor. The Greens councillor also ended up as the favourite to be mayor.

Joan van Lieshout, the former mayor, was named least popular, although Katie Milne was hot on her heels to take out a hat-trick.

There was a lot of interest in our coverage of both Andrew Turnbull and Joe Goold’s funerals, along with another crash originally believed to have resulted in the death of a Tweed woman.

On Saturday we took a trip back in time to read about the torture and murder of Brisbane schoolboy Peter Aston at Kingscliff in May 1982, and let you know that one of the men convicted of the murder is up for parole soon.

The plight of firefighters stung with parking fines while out serving their community struck a chord with many readers. An overwhelming 84 per cent of poll respondents said on-duty emergency servicemen and women should be exempt from parking fines.
