Council candidate promises to run a positive campaign

LEONNIE Hamill wants to run a positive campaign for her quest to un-seat deputy mayor Robert Garland at the next election.

Ms Hamill, a teacher at Aldridge State High School said her greatest asset was knowing the region, having lived here most of her life.

She said good infrastructure planning was the key to facilitating growth in the region.

"I know there's a lot of development going on around the area," she said.

"The bay has been growing and will continue to grow at a rapid rate - our infrastructure needs to keep up.

"Traffic is going to increase.

"The bay has got to move forward."

Ms Hamill is also a firm supporter in the current council's $52 million sport precinct.

"Netball hasn't got anywhere to go at the moment so they need it," she said.
