New GM vows to cut council waste
NEW Richmond Valley Council general manager John Walker has vowed to cut waste at the council to improve services in the community.
The vow came even as Mr Walker fended off his first attack, from Evans Head resident Richard Gates.
Mr Walker said the attack against him even before he had started the job was a "bit of a surprise" and "disappointing" but nothing he would let worry him.
"I am more than happy to be judged on my performance at any time," he said.
