Central Queensland News - - NEWS | CHRC BY-ELECTION -

COUN­CIL nom­i­nee Michael McDon­ald says he be­lieves the coun­cil needs the in­put of some­one like him­self who can “tell them what it’s re­ally like to bring up a fam­ily, and strug­gle, and work”. Mr McDon­ald, who has lived in Ruby­vale for 15 years and works in Emer­ald, said he was keen to ad­vo­cate for the peo­ple who did not usu­ally get a say in de­ci­sions. “And then you’ve got rates, which are higher than on the Gold Coast. They’re one of the high­est in Queens­land.” Mr McDon­ald said it was cru­cial to en­tice more peo­ple to the area as “there’s more peo­ple leav­ing than stay­ing”, and he wants to en­cour­age and stim­u­late busi­ness.
