Well, there must be an election in the offing - our erstwhile Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has actually been spotted in Boundary Street West End, pressing the flesh and electioneering like nobody's business. (Graham doesn't get over to West End very often - usually about every four years or so.)
With the retirement of popular local Councillor Helen Abrahams we have four relative newcomers contesting The Gabba Ward on March 19. For your edification, we've published profiles on each of the declared candidates below.
If you'd like to get to know them better, they've all agreed to take part in a couple of community forums in the next few weeks.
The first, organised by West End Community Association and this newspaper, takes place at The Loft in Boundary Street on Wednesday 10th Feb.
The second is being put on by the Kurilpa Futures Group, and happens on Wednesday 17th Feb down at Souths in Davies Park.
Do try and make it along, and let the candidates know how you feel about local issues.
Cheers, and have a good read.
