Lockyer requires a new direction for its future

LIFE and death. As a human race, we all have that in common. We develop our own identity and leave behind an impression.

So it is with the sudden passing of Lockyer Valley Regional Council's Mayor S. Jones.

Not all of the ambitious projects, commenced whilst L.V.R.Council was being guided or influenced by the person "larger than life!!"

However, the fact remains, L.V.R.Council's late mayor no longer controls outcomes.

We head into a really new era with the forthcoming council elections in April.

Many new contenders for councillor and mayor roles will now emerge.

We must choose very wisely.

This, to me, necessitates an elected group of new faces. They must demonstrate fiscal austerity, to deliver our finances back into the black, without placing us into the "doldrums," of no forward direction.
