‘Nomination is not a conflict of interest’ says CE chairman
GRAHAM Scott has stepped back from making any public comment as Capricorn Enterprise chairman while he runs for a seat at the Livingstone council table.
In an email to members of the group he said his nomination was not a conflict of interest. to his role as chairman.
"I became chairman of Capricorn Enterprise because I was not prepared to sit back and watch five years of my efforts (as a director on the board of both Capricorn Enterprise and the former Rockhampton Regional Development Ltd) and all the gains we have collectively made for the region be eroded," the email said. Mr Scott said he was not involved in the daily operations of the group.
Although Mr Scott took out an advertisement with fellow candidates in the Capricorn Coast Mirror, he said his nomination was independent of other candidates. He also said he was committed to ensuring Capricorn Enterprise remained an apolitical organisation.
