Who to lean on to replace the Leaning Tower of Ballina

IT looks like no level of government is in a rush to stump up the last few hundred thousand dollars needed to replace Ballina's Marine Rescue tower.

That means it's up to us as a community to remind them one of the reasons they are there is to ensure vital, life-saving infrastructure doesn't get left on the back burner.

To do that, call and write our local MPs as well as government leaders and ministers.

Here are a few pollies you might want to get on the blower to and politely suggest they should get on with replacing the tower:
