Keyworth will go for council

BRAD Keyworth is usually the man behind the camera.

He runs his own production company but yesterday stepped into the spotlight announcing he plans to contest the upcoming local government elections.

Brad, who has also done camera work for Channel Ten, Seven and the ABC, will stand against long-term councillor Cherie Rutherford in the Division 5 contest at the Rockhampton Regional Council elections in March.

Brad yesterday described himself as a community-minded person who is heavily involved with local organisations.

He sees the big issues including water taste/quality and a return back to basics in delivering key council services such as roads.

"We need to make sure ratepayers' money is not being wasted and is used in the best possible way," he said yesterday.

He is passionate about Rockhampton's future.

"As a councillor I think you can be more involved in the community," Brad said.

"I think we also need more of a positive attitude towards Rockhampton because we do live in a really great place and we need to be proud of that."

Brad will be one of many in the community who will contest the election which Premier Anna Bligh said would be held on Saturday, March 31.

Rockhampton region residents have been encouraged to make sure they have their say by enrolling to vote. Everyone over the age of 18 is required to vote.

Enrolment forms are available online at www.aec.gov.au, by phoning 132 326, or at any Australian Post Office and AEC office.
