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

FOR­MER coun­cil­lor and Capella lo­cal Gai Sypher would ded­i­cate her­self to fos­ter­ing in­clu­sive and wel­com­ing com­mu­ni­ties if elected to the Cen­tral High­lands coun­cil.

Ms Sypher said lo­cal gov­ern­ments did more than just “roads, rates and rub­bish” by also de­liv­er­ing ser­vices and pro­grams that strength­ened com­mu­nity well-be­ing. “They also play a role in ad­vo­cat­ing in part­ner­ship with com­mu­ni­ties for fund­ing and ser­vices pro­vided by other lev­els of gov­ern­ment,” she said. As a coun­cil­lor from 2012-16, Ms Sypher said she would be keen to re­strain coun­cil debt that could neg­a­tively af­fect growth.
