6. Bob Kat­ter

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

Num­ber 6 with a bul­let af­ter the re­cent fed­eral elec­tion. The Mad Kat­ter, as he is af­fec­tion­ately known, was one of three in­de­pen­dents who ul­ti­mately de­cided on who would gov­ern the coun­try af­ter we elected a hung Par­lia­ment. The In­de­pen­dent Mem­ber for Kennedy made the front page of the New York Times dur­ing the elec­tion im­broglio. Con­tin­ues to wield enor­mous in­flu­ence in Can­berra. Mav­er­ick or not, he’s a se­ri­ous po­lit­i­cal player. The real ques­tion is whether he’s a ge­nius or off the planet.
