What readers want Livingstone council candidates to address

FOR the third time this year, Livingstone residents will head to the polls.

On November 9, they will elect a new council.

Ahead of the close of nominations on October 17, The Bulletin is asking readers what issues they want candidates to address.

Comments on this subject on Facebook so far were:

Tanya Gibson - I'd like to see less sqaubling and more actually working FOR the shire and with the people. NOT working for their own agenda's. Heres to hoping the new candidates will be fresh new approachable and willing to be great leaders.

Lynda N Rodney Rogers - I would like them to not forget about the people who don't actually live in Yeppoon, like Rocky outskirts but classed as Livingstone shire.

Joanna Palmer - Who are the candidates

Karen Ferry - Free camping areas with time limits on, and also the show grounds open up for self contained campers for a small fee. In our travels nobody visited Yeppoon because they could not get into the parks in peak season. An overflow area would be good like the show grounds. These people spend money on the coast if they have somewhere to stay .

Paul Lawrie -  I would like to know what the new council's policy will be on engaging local small businesses for the supply of council infrastructure and services. So far the de-amalgamation has used mostly resources that are not local as far as I can tell.
