9. John Bearne

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

As chair­man of Townsville En­ter­prise, Mr Bearne is a big pic­ture guy with tremen­dous vi­sion and a zest for mak­ing North Queens­land a bet­ter place to live.

He con­tin­ues to un­der­stand the value of a bi­par­ti­san ap­proach to pol­i­tics and is well re­spected by both the ALP and the Tories. Mr Bearne has played a piv­otal role in se­cur­ing big wins such as the mall rede­vel­op­ment and the over­haul of Jezzine Bar­racks. A doer, not afraid to ask the tough ques­tions.
