Readers responded to Tweed Shire Council’s decision to raise a rainbow flag or banner in support of a “Yes” vote for marriage equality. Full story page 3.
Our vote is our personal choice so why divide the community by putting banners up for one side and I really don’t think it has anything to do with council. — Yvonne Phillips
Not a shire matter it’s a personal one. If you want to show your support for it, fine, fly a flag in your own backyard ... not on the council chambers on behalf of the shire residents who haven’t been consulted about it and also don’t want to foot the bill for the flags and banners when there is way more important shire issues that need addressing and the money! — Sandra Conway
Should be other issues in the shire they need to look at or focus on. Have they looked at fire dangers yet? — Brad Beadel
The council has no business choosing any side of this debate. Their position should be neutral. — David Scott They don’t speak for me. — Anthony Franken How about fix these potholes in the Banora Point area. — Justin Van Gulik

A big yes. I saw what went down when we lost our train and station as a destination. Wasn’t happy.
Now the infrastructure is so far out of date and unrepairable it would cost heaps to get it up and running again.
— Jill Kinneally Trains not trail PLEASE!
— Jenny Stevens Sorry Jenny but will never happen. NSW government don’t care about this part of the state. — Greg Mcarthur
