A couple of firm starters for the fast-nearing Wingecarribee Shire Council elections have announced their intentions. As we predicted some time ago, Greg Franklin is intending to stand following his stoush with Winge Inc over his housing development. In the same post that I first raised Franklin as a goer, I also said Jim Mauger wouldn’t stand again. Big Jim has proven me wrong, announcing in the Southern Highland News that his name will be on the ballot this September. Oh well, 50/50 isn’t too bad.
On that note, I’m running a poll on the Facebook page of my company, The Fat Tulip. The poll asks you to suggest what questions I should put to Wingecarribee Council candidates. Your thoughts are much appreciated! Here’s the link.
