  1. For sure, politics is a dirty game. Living close to 4-way intersection Capalaba Finucane/Old Cleveland Rd East, noted mainly huge signs of Mayor Williams and where for example, Tracey Huges had several on Old Cleveland Rd E close to intersection, they all disappeared overnight likewise, those of Greg Underwood, not a well known figure in Redland City but whose signs also vanished/trashed overnight keeping evil doers busy. My sister lives in Wellington Manor and wanted to know what Greg Underwood looked like plus many others not seeing signs other than those of Mayor Williams mainly.
    I am of the opinion Qld Electoral Commission need to prevent nursing home residents from voting. For example, I visited 90-yr old friend in CapellaBay Aged Care Home at 1 Brewer St entry, Capalaba, asked friend Heather, (who advised 2 males escorted residents into a room to vote)….’who did you vote for?’ Reply: ‘wouldn’t have a clue’.
    Also, had residents been aware of Greg Underwood’s credentials, feel certain he would have been elected as Mayor having been in the past General Manager of Redland Council when a Shire, with engineering background, of major importance, considering our roads crisis.
    Part of Mr Underwood’s engineering accomplishments, was establishing over a 2-yr period a magnificent water park in Cairns…frequented by people of all ages, by the Esplanade with its many eateries, etc. and considered THE place for tourists. Seems with Karen Williams retaining her seat, will, as she tells us ‘Mayor Williams fix traffic congestion’ on major roads, etc etc. and will she continue to rely heavily on a well heeled development industry? Time will tell.

  2. Clearly the public have spoken! But that is after BIG MONEY has screamed .
    Regardless of who finally wins [sic] ( read gets (re)hired to run the council … represents the ALL of VOTERS). And given the paucity of information from the Mayor’s team they clearly do NOT have a mandate to rule i.e. follow their arcane and myopic ideology.
    One should note that the council is not a party (mayors team or others team) run. It is and was intended to be an independent representative group. Other wise it would have been like the Brisbane Council party based ( with clear plans, promises and ideologies).
    Given the interference of power groups … large property owners whose main goal is to make profits from the land ( read land speculators) and developers ( again speculators).
    Then there’s the massive imbalance in the amounts of money available to the competing groups
    i.e the combined speculators V the people who are actual voters. it is a nonsense to suggest that the election was fair or even between two equals…. so much for Democracy.
    Added to that the actual relevant educative competence I can say confidently this council is run by the ignorant and inexperienced in running a public entity … to my knowledge there is only one councillor whose background is sound and appropriate… and he is not in the Mayor’s team.
