Meet the Candidates evenings a success!

More than two hundred and twenty people attended our “Meet the Candidates” evenings in Goondiwindi, Talwood, Yelarbon and Inglewood this month.

The Goondiwindi Chamber of Commerce hosted the events in the lead up to the election, to give ratepayers the chance to find out what the councillor candidates have to offer the Goondiwindi region.

With only six councillor positions available, the 11 candidates were eager to impress, and gave strong presentations on their priorities and vision for the region. Highlights included questions from the floor, an address from Mayor-designate Lawrence Springborg, and the opportunity for attendees to meet with the candidates one on one.

The evening in Goondiwindi was particularly successful, with around 120 people filling the Golf Club. Thank you to the Golf Club, the Yelarbon Oasis Hotel, the Talwood Hotel and the Inglewood Civic Centre for hosting the evenings.
