10. Ray Bur­ton

Townsville Bulletin - - North Queensland's 50 Most Powerful People -

Com­pe­tent and ca­pa­ble, the coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive has grown into his role since tak­ing up the po­si­tion about two and a half years ago. It has been a dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing task to merge the for­mer Thuringowa and Townsville City ad­min­is­tra­tions. He has also had to en­dure crit­i­cism over poli­cies on rates that have not been wel­comed by ratepay­ers. The chal­lenge for Mr Bur­ton is to look for­ward and put the un­rest be­hind the coun­cil ad­min­is­tra­tion af­ter a tough pe­riod.
