Well done to the new Ipswich council

CONGRATULATIONS to all the candidates who ran for the Councillor and Mayoral positions with the Ipswich City Council election.

It takes guts to run for public office - just by nominating the candidates demonstrated their support for the democratic process and their commitment to the City of Ipswich.

As I write this letter to the editor the count of votes is continues, but I would like to congratulate those candidates who are ultimately successful in being elected as our Mayor and Councillors for the next four years.

As one of the State Members representing the City of Ipswich in State Parliament, I have a close working relationship with the Ipswich City Council. I look forward to meeting with the new group of councillors at the first available opportunity and congratulating them personally.

JIM MADDEN Ipswich West MP
