The polls have been unkind to the council so far.

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council has been smashed by the community in the early results on the Chronicle's polls to mark the one year anniversary of the election.

Readers were asked on Saturday to rate the council's performance as a whole, as well as breaking it down to each councillor in their individual divisions.

By Monday morning, the polls had attracted a total of more than 1300 votes and the results were ugly for the council.

In the overall performance of the council, 40% of participants gave the FCRC the lowest possible score of 1 out of 10.

A total of 23% gave the council a pass mark or better, from 5 to 10 out of 10.

It was even worse for the individual councillors.

Only one had a positive result - Division 10 councillor George Seymour.

Cr Seymour had a satisfaction rating of 64%.

The next best was Division 7's Darren Everard, with 45% of participants satisfied with his performance.

Division 5's Rolf Light had the worst result, with only 18% of participants satisfied.

Mayor Gerard O'Connell had an approval rating of only 26%.

The polls will be open until Friday.

Rank the council's performance in its first year on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being terrible and 10 being fantastic.

This poll ended on 03 May 2013.

2 - 8%

4 - 3%
