Meet the candidates

A meet-the-candidates session will be held at the Byron Bay Community Centre next Thursday (Aug 19) at 7.30pm.


 All nine candidates for Richmond have confirmed they will attend.


Each candidate will give a five-minute presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session chaired by the Community Centre’s general manager, Paul Spooner, who said it was not only a unique opportunity to meet each and every candidate and to hear them present their policies, but also to get direct answers to your questions.


The event will be streamed live on the web and the presentations will be recorded by Bay FM for future broadcast.
