Lang eyes council seat

TIME is running out for potential council candidates, with nominations closing on March 27, but Greg Lang won't be among those who miss out after recently declaring his intentions.

Mr Lang said it was the first time he put up his hand for council and he was confident he could contribute as a councillor.

"I feel I could make a difference," he said.

Despite being his first tilt at the job, Mr Lang said he had exposure to the inner workings of council.

"I dealt with council fairly extensively getting the liberty swing in Leslie Park, and had several discussions with the councillors," he said.

After growing up on the Granite Belt then moving to Warwick, he said he knew the geography of the region well.

Mr Lang - who recently closed his computer business retail outlet to work from home - said he had insight into what businesses were going through.

"I would support any kind of industry that is looking at coming to town," he said.

"I would like to see better integration between towns," he said.

Outside of work, Mr Lang said he was a dedicated participant in the Variety Bash.

His declaration takes the total number of councillor candidates to 15. While slow to start, mayoral candidate numbers jumped to six with Cr Mally McMurtrie confirming her intention to run for the top job along side deputy mayor Peter Blundell, Kim Olsen, Phillip Buddle, Gina Doulis and Lindsay Goodwin.
