Healthy competition for council elections
NOMINATIONS for the upcoming council elections officially closed this week.
We have 17 candidates across our six division competing to take the top job for their area in the North Burnett Regional Council.
This competition I believe will be good for the region, for two reasons.
Having two to three candidates stand for each division will show voters differing approaches to problems in their communities.
All six divisions have at least two candidates for voters to choose from.
Division six is sure to be a tough battleground, as four candidates have put their hand up to take on the councillor position.
Divisions one, two and four are also going to be areas to watch, as each has three candidates in the race for the position.
This influx of potential councillors just proves there are many people in the North Burnett who care about the region and its future.
We have community leaders, business owners, and longtime locals all wanting to represent their constituents, and create change in their part of the world.
The team at the Central & North Burnett Times is just as eager as you are to see how those in the North Burnett will vote this March.
