Candidate positions revealed in ballot draw

THE order of candidates on the local government election’s ballot paper has been decided.

Helen Blackburn is the first name on the list and is then followed by Jack Dempsey and Kirt Anthony.

Ms Blackburn was delighted at her placement and said “I’m really pleased with the way the draw occurred and the fact the poll placed at number one.”

But she also said, “I would hope people would vote based on the ability … and not the placing on the ballot paper.”

Mr Dempsey’s response to being placed next in the order was, “it’s great democracy and I just say to everyone ‘vote 1 Jack Dempsey.”

Mr Anthony said, “well, as long as our names are out there and we’re putting out our best, it doesn’t matter our position and what’s been drawn.”
