Accountant the latest to stand for Hervey Bay council seat
HERVEY Bay accountant and chamber of commerce vice president Geoff Redpath will stand for division six in March's council elections.
After incumbent councillor Trevor McDonald announced he would not re-contest his Point Vernon seat, Mr Redpath decided to confirm his candidacy.
Mr Redpath has lived in Point Vernon for the past seven years said he would make the infrastructure needs of the community his highest priority.
"I want to see better roads, more footpaths, improved curbing, drainage and a greater connectivity for non-road users to get around safely," he said.
Mr Redpath recently resigned from his senior client manager position at CLM Chartered Accountants to focus on his council campaign.
Earlier this year he pioneered a petition to have the Urraween Rd intersection upgraded.
The petition attracted more than 4000 signatures and forced the State Government to speed-up design works.
