Here is the last of four articles looking at the teams and candidates how to vote cards. Also some meet the candidates news too heading into the last week of campaigning and pre-polling before election day on 4 December.
The Greens (Johnathan Cassell for Mayor)
The Coffs Harbour Greens led by Mayoral Candidate Jonathan Cassell shows him on his Mayoral Ballot suggesting his number 2 preference going to Sally Townley, the number 3, to Paul Amos and number 4 to Labor’s Tony Judge.
In the Councillors Ballot, The Greens occupy the Group D ticket. The advice from them is for the Group B ticket, Labor, as their number 2 choice , and for their suggested number 3 choice, Group F ticket, Sally Townley.
The fourth choice as the Greens suggested preference is the Paul Amos team in Group C.
Note: Paul Amos has advised he is giving no suggested preferences to any other candidate or group.
The Liberal Democrats (no candidate for Mayor)
The Liberal Democrats have just two candidates for Councillor, Greg Renet and Craig Webber.
They are not accepting or offering their preferences to any Candidate or Group.
They are hoping that their platform will bring them success.The Liberal Democrats occupy Group H.
Team Adendorff (Cr Michael Adendorff for Mayor)
It would seem the only suggested preferences are on the Mayoral ballot where this team suggests a second preference for Cr George Cecato.

Meet the candidates – 30 November Cavanbah Hall
With the local government election just over a week away many of our voters are looking at a quite an extensive field of candidates vying for a position as one of our civic leaders over the next few years.
While many will be familiar with quite a few faces from the previous council who have put their hand up for re election there are also quite a few new faces with whom the community will not be familiar.
With Covid restrictions placing limitations on gatherings and the handing out of promotional material opportunities to get to know the candidates are limited.
Coffs Harbour LGA Residents & Ratepayers Association will be holding a “Meet the Candidates Forum” at the Cavanbah Hall on Tuesday 30th November at 6.30pm. We hope to enable some of those who have not made up their minds or are seeking clarity on the candidates vision for Coffs Harbours future to be further inform their choice of representative.
Due to Covid restrictions our numbers are of course limited too and the meeting will be held in compliance with current health regulations for public meetings.
For this reason we are asking people who are interested in attending to contact us via email to reserve a place for the event.
In accordance with regulations anyone attending must be able to sign in and show proof of full vaccination. Masks are required and social distancing protocols will be observed.
For further information or to reserve a seat anyone interested in attending can contact us at [email protected] or ring Ann on 0438 780-300.
