Elusive Wyatt throws in hat
INDEPENDENT candidate Peter Wyatt will have to fight his way to the top from the bottom of the ballot paper.
Mr Wyatt was drawn last at the Burnett ballot draw on Tuesday, where he will seek office for the third time.
The former RAAF chef was unsuccessful in his bids for Burnett in 2009 and Bundaberg in 2012.
In 2009 he polled just 760 votes (2.86%) to run second-last (Rob Messenger retained his seat with 56.65%).
In 2012 he tried to unseat the LNP’s Bundaberg representative Jack Dempsey, but polled just 428 votes (1.6%) as Mr Dempsey swooped to victory (53.16%).
Town & Country failed to get hold of Mr Wyatt before print, who previously ran campaigns based on environmental and economic issues.
The elusive Independent candidate also fought for low-income earners and pensioners at the last election, and rallied for more rail services.
It is unknown what platform he will run with this election, yet had 16% of the unofficial www.news-mail.com.au poll at time of print.
IN RUNNING: Independent candidate Peter Wyatt in 2012.
