Race for council continues

MAL Forman is still leading the way in the race for mayor with 1582 votes separating him from Bill Trevor.

Ninety-eight of the 101 booths in the electorate have now been counted with postal votes all due in today.

Mr Forman is sitting in the lead with 19,178 votes, followed by Mr Trevor on 17,596 votes, outgoing mayor Lorraine Pyefinch on 10,989 votes and Leo Karnauchow on 1480 votes.

While former Isis Shire mayor Mr Trevor started out leading the way with votes from booths in Gin Gin and the Isis being counted early, it was not long before Mr Forman, a former Bundaberg City deputy mayor, took the lead.

The race in Division 5 is teasingly close with only 98 votes separating front runner Greg Barnes from Kerry Short.

Mr Barnes is sitting on 2111 votes, followed closely by Mr Short with 2013, Kris Carter with 860 and Frank Mueller with 160.

Division 4 is also yet to be declared with Vince Habermann leading with 1816 votes, 520 more votes than

current councillor Mary Wilkinson who is sitting on 1296 votes.

The race is also not over in Division 6 where current councillor Danny Rowleson is leading the way with 2382 votes to John Fichera's 1691.

Councillors already declared are Alan Bush in Division 1, Wayne Honor in Division 3 and Ross Sommerfeld in Division 7.

Councillors who were returned unopposed were Tony Ricciardi in Division 2, David Batt in Division 8, Judy Peters in Division 9 and Lynne Forgan in Division 10.
