Sign dumping bandit strikes council candidates' campaign

WILD Cattle Creek is the latest place to be littered with the candidates' corflutes for the Gladstone election.

On Monday afternoon a resident called the Gladstone Regional Council about corflutes in Wild Cattle Creek.

A parks supervisor went down to the creek and found 38 corflutes from a variety of candidates had been uprooted from strategic road side positions and dumped in the water.

Councillor candidate Lynette Dahl who lives at Tannum Sands picked up all the signs yesterday morning and took them to the election office on Hanson Rd.

It was frustrating for the candidates who had to position the corflutes themselves.

Kahn Goodluck, who came out of it the worst with eight signs found in the creek, said it wasn't just the corflutes that were annoying, the stakes were expensive too.

Jody McMullen had seven pulled out of the creek, Cindi Bush, Lynette Dahl and PJ Sobhanian had three.

Ren Lanzon, Amanda McRae, Natalia Muszkat, Gail Sellers and Alex Staines all had two.

Rick Hansen, Peter Masters, Peter Powell and Chris Trevor had one.

But there may be more left in the creek with some candidates saying they were still missing some from Boyne Island and Tannum Sands.
