Chamber Slams the Mayors Anti Business Comments

The Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce strongly supports the local businesses of Kingscliff and the entire Tweed Shire Community.

Local businesses have come under attack from the Mayor of Tweed Shire Katie Milne for attempting to ban local businesses and contractors from being able to work on the new $534 million Tweed Valley Hospital and working with Tweed Shire Council.

This is a direct threat to people’s livelihoods and peoples jobs all for the sake of Clr Milne abusing her power.

The Mayor recently announced the threat to boycott businesses and place blockades of the site. These actions are simply madness and not supported by the Chamber of Commerce.  Such actions are not beneficial to the business community and to suggest that a business that works on the construction of the hospital is to be boycotted from working for the council is totally unacceptable.

We remind the Mayor and Councilors to support local businesses in line with their local procurement policy.
