Sweet surprise in mailbox drops

BUNDABERG Regional Council candidate Kris Carter is trying to bring a little sweetness to the campaign.

Ms Carter, who is standing for election in Division 5, is doing the normal drop of election material into letterboxes in the area, but stapled to each brochure is a lolly.

"I'm just giving people a little something extra," she said.

"Maybe they're more likely to read it if they've got something extra."

Ms Carter said she was dropping brochures into every mailbox in Division 5.

"It's a lot of mailboxes - and a lot of lollies," she said.

Ms Carter has also said if she were elected, a top priority would be the completion of the multipurpose pathway from Burnett Heads in the north to Elliott Heads in the south.

She said much good work had already been done, but there were many missing links.

"Completion will not only provide a wonderful recreation outlet for young and seniors, but more importantly provide the linkage thread binding all coastal villages in economic and social partnership," she said.

Ms Carter also said if elected, she would form a working group called Friends of our Coast to advise her on ways to enhance local and tourist enjoyment, including gym-style equipment at strategic points.
