Local Election Meet the Candidates Breakfaast

At our Local Election Meet the Candidate’s Breakfast last week it was interesting to hear from 25 of the 27 candidates, about what they stand for and why we should vote for them. To have so many people passionate about making a difference to our city is heartening. It was wonderful to have high school students from Cathedral and Grammar at the event present on the day too especially after some sent in really considered questions for the candidates. 


It’s so important that we involve young people in these discussions to gain an understanding of how democracy works. I remember various politicians coming to visit us in high school to talk about the importance of voting and one Politician , Sir Bob, who went on to represent our town for over 20 years, came into our school and spoke passionately to us about the power of every single vote and making sure we knew what and who we were voting for. This is why, as the only independent voice of business in Townsville we host these election events to ensure our members and the wider community have the information they need to make an informed decision.
