Deputy looking ahead to challenge

NEWLY elected Deputy Mayor David Batt is looking forward to the challenge facing him as Bundaberg Regional Council prepares to turn a new leaf.

Cr Batt was voted unanimously to the position during the council's first meeting following the local government election at the end of April.

A former police officer, Cr Batt resigned from the position after he was returned to the Division 8 seat unopposed.

"It's an honour to be selected by my peers around the table," he said.

"Now I have to step up to the mark."

Cr Batt said his most important task would be ensuring the council worked well together as a team.

"I think we can really work well to get the best for Bundaberg over the next four years," he said.

"I'm there and ready to go."

Cr Batt said it would be a case of working with new Bundaberg Mayor Mal Forman.

"He has got some different ideas," he said.

"But we are all there to support whoever is in the chair. Mal has got different types of leadership skills as well."

Cr Batt said he wasn't yet sure what changes people could expect under the new leadership.

"We have to work together and figure out how we can work better," he said.
