Mayor to jump ship to new career?

FRASER Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell might have his life after local politics mapped out for him, after discovering a new talent behind the camera today.

At the launch of a new boat from local company BtB Marine, the mayor somehow ended up holding the camera for WIN television.

A good laugh was had as he and cameraman Shane Sauer had a quick go of a role reversal, with Shane holding forth as the talent in Cr O'Connell's tv interview.

Cr O'Connell was quick to deny he was looking into a career in television, though.

"There are people who should be in front of the camera, and people who should be behind it," he chuckled.
