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

■ TWEED res­i­dents have been given the op­por­tu­nity to re­spond to plans for the North­ern Rivers Rail Trail.

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Now the in­fra­struc­ture is so far out of date and un­re­pairable it would cost heaps to get it up and run­ning again.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
