New jetty bites when fishing for votes
Liberal Gilmore candidate Warren Mundine visited Tuross Head to become familiar with Kyla Park Hall, which will be the venue of a "Meet the Candidates" community forum and Q A session hosted by the Tuross Head Progress Association on Monday, April 29 from 7-9pm.
It is an apolitical association, but it has taken the opportunity to arrange the forum so residents can hear firsthand from the five candidates running for the federal seat, to be vacated by retiring MP Ann Sudmalis.
All five candidates are expected to attend the forum, to be adjudicated by resident Gary Smith.
The candidates are:
- Fiona Philips - Labor
- Warren Mundine - Liberal
- Grant Shultz - Independent
- Carmel McCallum - Greens
- Katrina Hodkinson - National
As at April 12, Ms Phillips and McCallum and Mr Mundine had accepted the invitation.
Mr Mundine also met the Eurobodalla Shire-based Recreational Fishers Alliance of NSW vice-president, Max Castle, to inspect the Tuross Head fishing jetty, which is overdue for replacement. It is hoped candidates vying for the seat may commit to making funds available for the delivery of a sorely needed new jetty for the benefit of recreational fishers.
The need for the replacement of the only fishing jetty in the village has garnered strong support from the association, the Tuross Head Fishing Club, the Tuross Head Country Club, the Tuross Business Owners Association and the Eurobodalla Shire Council.

To all the wonderful supporters of our "Pink up Long Beach"
It has been brought to my attention that some of the emails following our "Pink up Long Beach" were not delivered. It is for that reason I am going to hand deliver to all.
Each year in October, the McGrath Foundation "pinks up" towns all around Australia to raise funds for more McGrath breast cancer nurses. Each year I try and raise $5000 for the Becky Barney McGrath Nurse Scholarship.
We here at Long Beach and Maloneys Beach, in October 2018, raised $7400. This was done with help, support and time by a lot of wonderful volunteers and donations from many of our local businesses.
Thank you all so much and I do hope we can call on you again in October 2019.
Thanks from Phil and Sharon
May I advise all fantastic supporters of motor neurone disease research who have made such a fantastic local event in the Walk to Defeet MND.
Two years of improving donations to the walk are a credit to our people. The MND Association has advised the dated event is going to Young this year. The MND crew from Young was out in support of our last walk and they will carry the flag. As the "hidden onlooker" I personally thank all our team who have worked so hard to make these events so good. I also thank the continued ongoing work by two gems in Bron and Di. Please support them in their fundraising stall. Vic H, you are a maniac, but, geez, your talent and savvy makes a big difference. Sharon will no doubt communicate to you all shortly via voice to text.
For the past nine years, a big thanks to all. Looking back over what we have experienced, I have learned a lot about myself. I have climbed my Everest, being careful not to slip on the way down. Sharon is my inspiration and we are enduring ... as good as it gets.
