Post-election statement

Statement by Andrew Woodward, Candidate for Mayor and Councillor

This was local Labor’s first tilt at the local government election in Bellingen Shire.

We created a base upon which we can grow. 

In so doing, we learned a lot. 

We’re appreciative of the support we received across the shire.

There are many well-entrenched personal and geographic loyalties that make local government elections a challenge for Labor as compared to state and federal polls.

We now turn our attention to the defeat of the Morrison Joyce Government in 2022.
