Wyatt backs cycling

TOM Wyatt is backing mayoral candidate Dominic Doblo's cycle path plans, but he's not ruled out running for office himself in April's council elections.

The nursery owner and gardening guru, who was removed from his position in charge of parks and gardens at the council in controversial circumstances three years ago, remains coy on the question.

All he will say is that he is giving serious consideration to standing for the council.

And he would not be drawn on whether he might stand as a divisional councillor or make a bid for mayor against landscaper Mr Doblo, engineer Tim Griffin, real estate salesman Lea Taylor and current mayor Brad Carter.

Mr Wyatt's business is at the Capricorn Coast and if he runs as a divisional councillor there's speculation he might challenge former Livingstone Shire mayor Bill Ludwig or Emu Park-based Brett Svendsen.
