DAVID POWER OFFICIAL MAYORAL LAUNCH

CIVIC leader and businessman David Power (pictured) will make an official run for the Gold Coast mayoralty.

The former deputy mayor will declare his candidacy for the 2012 mayoral election and unveil his vision for the city at a luncheon in the QT International ballroom on Tuesday, May 10, at 12 noon.

More than 200 members of the community have confirmed their attendance for the event.

Power hinted to Gold Coast Business News in September last year that he would be running for the top job (read story here).

“We have seen the results in recent years of inexperience in council leadership positions and base, self-interested politics can do to a city that was leading the way only four or five years ago. The result is that more and more power passes from the people to bureaucrats ensuring we become mired deeper in process and ideology rather than outcomes,” he says.

“The solution will be in our hands but will the business community run for cover as it has in the past, or will it form a united front to encourage change and true leadership?”
