PEOPLE planning to run for the council should learn from State Labor's disastrous election loss, Mayor Paul Pisasale said yesterday.

The mayor thanked former premier Anna Bligh for supporting the city and said she was wrongly blamed for Labor's landslide loss.

"I think it's important to put on record the gratitude the city has for the work Anna did for the city and to wish her well in her retirement. No leader should take all the blame," Cr Pisasale said.

"The whole campaign team should take responsibility for the negative campaign that Labor ran.

"The days of trying to destroy your opponent should be over. It has to be all about your policies.

"I would hope anyone nominating for council would have learned that you need to run on your policies and not attacking your opponent."

He also thanked departing duo Wayne Wendt and Rachel Nolan, but said that "Ipswich has spoken for change".

"Now I look forward to working with Campbell and the three Ipswich MPs to make sure Ipswich remains a growth corridor," Cr Pisasale said.

"The good thing is, with his background, Campbell should want to work closer with local government."
