Ed­i­tor’s com­ment:

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK - Greg Mclean Man­ag­ing ed­i­tor

VOT­ERS in the Dou­glas re­gion are blessed with four very ca­pa­ble can­di­dates for Di­vi­sion 10 in Satur­day’s Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil elec­tions.

Each of the four can­di­dates have a strong back­ground and solid com­mit­ment to their com­mu­nity and would more than likely be a ca­pa­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive for our re­gion.

But in the three years I have lived here, Ju­lia Leu stands out as one of the most ded­i­cated and ef­fec­tive politi­cians I have dealt with in 16 years of as­so­ci­a­tion through the me­dia.

Be­ing a politi­cian is a largely thank­less job and while some choose to slink off in the back­ground and chew the fat of the public purse, oth­ers take their role in­cred­i­bily se­ri­ously and work their fin­gers to the bone for their con­stituents.

I know for a fact Ju­lia Leu fits into the lat­ter cat­e­gory to a de­gree I have rarely seen be­fore.

Tak­ing noth­ing away from the other Di­vi­sion 10 can­di­dates, the Dou­glas re­gion will be well placed if she is re-elected.

And if you don’t like Val Shier, then be care­ful what you wish for.
