I would like start today’s column by congratulating Llew O’Brien, who was elected and returned to his federal seat representing the Division of Wide Bay. There is no doubt that Llew works hard for the region and that was reflected in the result. We as a Council, and myself personally, look forward to continuing to work with Llew on many projects to enhance and support our community.
It is Council’s role to advocate and work with all levels of government, regardless of who is in office. We are not aligned to any party; nor should we be. Our role is to work for our community. To do this, we work hard to form respectful and constructive relationships with both the state and federal governments in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for our region.
We have historically had very good relationships with state and federal government and it is my intention to continue this. We only have to look over the last few years at the funding successes and results that have been delivered for the residents of the region.
We will continue to do so as Gympie Regional Council but myself also as Chair and member of WBBROC, the collective group of councils which include Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, North Burnett, South Burnett, Cherbourg and ourselves.
If you haven’t had a chance to look at the Draft Budget, I would encourage you to head to the council website and read through, and pass on any feedback that you would like us to know. We are also asking residents their opinion on the Gold Rush Parade; you can have your say on the website or head to the Council Facebook page.
