ONE of the candidates in the most heavily contested divisions in Queensland believes this presents a unique opportunity for the people of Maryborough.

"People are calling Division 3 the pool of death - I see it as a wonderful opportunity," said Lance Stone, who is one of eight candidates for Division 3.

Mr Stone said he was highly impressed with the calibre of his fellow-candidates and thought it would be a shame to see such drive and passion lost to the community after the election.

"My position on this is that if elected I would ask all other candidates to form a Division 3 Working Group, that would provide support and advice on the needs of the community, Mr Stone said.

While admitting that he may be "optimistic" in thinking his opponents would be immediately willing to turn around and help a candidate who just defeated them, Mr Stone said he was willing to put his money where his mouth was on the issue.

"If another candidate wins and then asks me for any help through my experience in the Chamber of Commerce, I will be happy to give it to them," he said.

Mr Stone said the Division 3 Working Group would be an ideal way to make full use of the passion, determination and good ideas from all candidates to bring about real change for Maryborough.
