Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

DATES have been set for pub­lic fo­rums in­tro­duc­ing can­di­date for the new shire elec­tions. The fo­rums, or­gan­ised by Phil Hol­loway and oth­ers in the pub­lic in­ter­est, will be in Port Dou­glas at the Evac­u­a­tion Cen­tre from 6 pm on Mon- day, Oc­to­ber 28, and Moss­man Com­mu­nity Hall on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 30. In­vi­ta­tions will be given to all nom­i­nees to at­tend both meet­ings, so they can be in­tro­duced to the vot­ing pub­lic. Each will be in­tro­duced and given a brief time to in­form us about their back­grounds, work his­tory, ex­pe­ri­ences and ex­plain why they are stand­ing for elec­tion and why we should vote for them. Then the fo­rum will be opened to ques­tions from the floor. A va­ri­ety of ques­tions for the can­di­dates will be pre­pared by the com­mit­tee and di­rected to the can­di­dates if there is a lack of ques­tions from the floor. As­pir­ing can­di­dates can at­tend an in­for­ma­tion sem­i­nar at the Cham­bers in Moss­man on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 16, 6-9pm.
