Dates announced for public forums to meet shire candidates
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.
