Tweed candidates in the spotlight

CANDIDATES for the seat of Tweed will be put under the spotlight this Monday night.

The Banora Point and District Residents Association will hold a public meeting at the Banora Point Community Centre on Leisure Dr.

All Tweed residents are invited to attend the meeting and question Greens candidate Andrea Vickers, Australian Labour Party candidate Reece Byrnes and sitting National Party MP Geoff Provest.

Banora Point and District Residents Association secretary Pat Tate said that despite numerous attempts Christian Democrat candidate Corinne Pennay could not be contacted concerning the public forum.

“Each one of the candidates will be given time to speak during the public meeting,” Ms Tate said.

“Then the audience will be invited to ask the candidates questions. Each candidate will have the chance to be heard.”

Ms Tate said residents were asked to be respectful during the meeting.

“We have had to set some ground rules. There will be no placards and no insults,” Ms Tate said.

“We would like to keep it spirited, but there is no reason for anybody to get abusive.”

Ms Tate said the meeting would begin at 7pm DST.

Coffee and tea will be served at the meeting’s conclusion.
