BUNDABERG Chamber of Commerce president Ron Bishop is looking forward to putting your questions to the candidates at the NewsMail community forum on Thursday.

A senior lecturer at CQUniversity and former United States Air Force pilot, Mr Bishop is used to maintaining composure under pressure.

“I like to give back. I like us to be all connected and have our opinions,” he said.

Mr Bishop is also the squadron commander of the 228 squadron Air Cadets as well as being on a number of charity committees. Mr Bishop has only lived in Australia for about two years and is yet to develop any political alliances.

“I never really had any political allegiances even in the States,” he said.

Questions for the community forum need to be sent to the News- Mail by email, post or SMS by Tuesday.
