It's question time
QUESTIONS raised by Rockhampton region voters, either on The Morning Bulletin website or by email, will be put to state election candidates today.
Capricorn Enterprise, in partnership with The Bully, is hosting a state candidate forum at CQUniversity, starting at noon.
Capricorn Enterprise has asked the candidates for Keppel, Mirani and Rockhampton to provide a summary of their commitment to each of the organisation's seven priority projects for the region.
The Bully has invited readers to submit questions for the candidates, including one for all the candidates to answer:
"Do you support each of the three development proposals being considered for the Fitzroy River Delta/ Raglan Creek/Curtis Island area and why?"
Capricorn Enterprise chief executive officer Mary Carroll said candidates would be asked to present in alphabetical order for seats and then candidates.
Capricorn Enterprise's seven priority projects include road, rail and air infrastructure; a dual sector university; Fitzroy River front development; Great Keppel Island and coastal foreshore revitalisation; securing the first NRL team for Central Queensland; and industrial land and associated infrastructure.
"These debates in the past have proven to be an excellent barometer for testing candidates' ability to engage in discussions on diverse issues, but also gives them an opportunity to hear what the community expects from them," Morning Bulletin editor Frazer Pearce said.
