Candidates will be grilled

IT IS time for the mayoral candidates to go under the microscope.

At the Hervey Bay Community Centre on April 17 from 7-9pm, Mick Kruger, Gerard O'Connell and Chris Couper will show how prepared they really are to run the Fraser Coast.

Rather than being given the questions ahead of time, deputy editor Mat Nott will make sure the candidates answer the tough questions asked on the night.

Residents can submit their own questions by filling in the tear-out found in Wednesday's edition of the Chronicle and presenting them at the Chronicle offices in Hervey Bay and Maryborough, or by bringing them along on the night.

Then on April 18, it's the turn of the divisional candidates.

Candidates from Divisions 5 - 10 will be invited to attend the Community Centre in Charles St, Pialba, where they will face the questions from the community.
