Kirkland claims victory in Division 7 as counting continues

KEEN as mustard to get on with the job of representing the Rockhampton Region as the Councillor for Division 7, Donna Kirkland has claimed victory in the Local Government Election.

With an estimated 203 postal votes yet to be counted, Ms Kirkland had built up an unassailable 1646 vote lead against her opponent Noeleen Horan.

Ms Kirkland said she was "really humbled" by the ­support people had shown across the city, especially those in Division 7 who had placed their trust in her.

She congratulated her opponent Ms Horan on a good campaign which "kept her on her toes", where they pushed each other all the way through.

As a non-drinker, Ms Kirkland said she wasn't popping the champagne but was preparing for the next ­chapter by setting up her home office, diving into the last budget and familiarising herself with legislation.

Her primary priority was supporting RRC's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Counting continues to decide who will be elected to represent CQ's local councils.

The results are arranged by candidate name, number of votes they have received and their percentage of the vote.
