Q&A planned for council hopefuls

RESIDENTS will get an opportunity to grill local election candidates at the next Tweed Heads Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

The breakfast starting at August 14 will be one of the first opportunities for people to see and hear from all the candidates with the nominations for the local elections closing August 8.

Chamber president Rory Curtis said the total number of candidates to appear at the breakfast wouldn't be known until the nomination deadline, but he was hoping to include the lead candidate on each team.

"We have done similar things to this previously," Mr Curtis said.

He said each speaker would have several minutes to introduce themselves and address issues such as water resources and economic development on the Tweed.

There will also be opportunity for questions to be asked from the floor.

People can phone book their seat at the breakfast by phoning 0401 338 035 or emailing info@tweedchamber.com.au

Anyone interested in having a question answered can submit them through the comments section below, My Daily News Facebook page or via Twitter (@my_daily_news).

Organisers will select to best questions from those submitted and we will publish the responses.
