Mayor announces reelection bid

Scenic Rim Mayor, Greg Christensen, has announced plans to seek a second term.

In a media release on Tuesday, Cr Christensen said he believed his track record demonstrated that he offered … “the real leadership, vision and strength to continue to lead this council to secure a strong future.

“For our region to reach its full potential we need well-informed strategic thinking, clear vision and strong leadership to deliver sustainability and confidence across our entire area.    

“We live in one of the richest places on earth: all of our communities should share in our opportunities.”

Cr Christensen was elected as Mayor in 2016.

“I feel that the job of setting our region on the right course towards its brightest future is not finished.  

“There is still much to be done with more programs to renew our community spaces and places, more opportunities to deliver new jobs and businesses, including the aim of making it possible for more school leavers to both live and work in the Scenic Rim.      

“There is still more to complete in the modernisation and customer orientation of our Council organisation and more to ensure we are balancing development and growth with the need to preserve and nurture our spectacular environment and the lifestyle which brings people here.  

“This is why I am declaring my intention to run as candidate for Mayor of the Scenic Rim Regional Council for a second successive term.”

The Local Government elections will be held on March 28, next year.
