Enrolled Local Land Services ratepayers have until the 31st of May to cast their vote in the local Board elections.
The North Coast Regional Landcare Network has been actively promoting the elections as an opportunity to give Landcare a voice on the North Coast Local Land Services board and asked for candidates who supported a Landcare agenda to identify themselves.
Landcare Project Officer, Terry Schmitzer from Hastings Landcare has been confirmed as standing for election. For the past 3 years Terry has successfully managed Hastings Landcare's BioFund project. Apart from his recent work with Hastings Landcare, Terry has extensive experience in weed management (17 years as Regional Weeds Management Officer) and runs a beef cattle property on the Comboyne. North Coast Regional Landcare feels Terry would be a strong advocate for Landcare on the North Coast Local Land Services Board.
