Ballina Mayor, Cr Sharon Cadwallader was today elected as Chair of the Northern Rivers Joint Organisation (NRJO).

The new board of the NRJO met for the first time following the Local Government elections with Cr Cadwallader stepping into the role of Chair and Kyogle Mayor, Cr Kylie Thomas, that of Deputy Chair.

Cr Cadwallader said she was looking forward to the two-year term as Chair of the NRJO.

“Collaboration amongst the local councils is crucial for the regions to thrive. As society recovers from the COVID pandemic, we - as a region - need to look at accessing the programs and incentives on offer by the government to ensure that the Northern Rivers is well-supported and well-represented. On issues of advocacy the more we work as a group the louder our voice,” Cr Cadwallader said.

The NRJO represents the Ballina, Byron, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed NSW local government areas.

With representation by the mayors and general managers of each Council, NRJO's role is to facilitate and lead advocacy, political representation and cooperative action on matters of regional significance.
