As a digital subscriber, you get a first look at this list and we'll send you an alert as we publish the names each day.

>>> REVEALED: 50-41 of Ipswich's Top 50 Most Influential list

There's no doubt that if we released this list 18 months ago, former mayor Paul Pisasale would have taken the top spot.

The top 10 would have been filled with the former councillors and perhaps some senior council staff.

But fast forward to today and the leadership of our city has a very different face.

You can read all about how this list was compiled and who made it in from spots 50-41 right here.

Whether you agree or not with what our panel of judges has decided, I'm sure this list will get you talking.

We're eager to hear what you think, email
