Can Assist and SPIN (supporting people in need) fundraising efforts were the real winners from today’s by-election turn-out. The brisk weather made the democratic sausages even sweeter and it was impossible to walk past the half-frozen volunteers at the CanAssist raffle table without spending an appreciative dollar or two.

Voters aghast at the treatment of the Yass Soldiers Memorial Hall gardens and surrounds are not alone in their ire. Yass Valley Times has already been contacted with bitter complaints as to the state of the gardens in front of and behind the cenotaph. The gardens have been staked out with wooden poles and candidate signage to a degree never before witnessed in Yass. ‘Never mind the roses’ seems to be the policy statement least appreciated by voters this election day in Yass.
