Mary's still running

MARY Rofe's online appearance may have quietened lately, but the councillor hopeful is anything but slowing down.

Once commenting on local stories on a daily basis, Mrs Rofe has been visibly absent from the Daily News website these past two weeks.

Mrs Rofe told the Daily News her election campaign had been delayed since the postponing of local government elections following the announcement of the state election.

"I'm definitely still running for councillor," she said.

"The change of date of the election has taken things off the boil a bit. But I'm still getting around and doing things.

"I've been walking around the shows and saying hello to people and giving out my card."

While she is still focusing on her local government campaign (last week her husband created a 3D sign and attached it to her vehicle) she said she was helping the LNP ahead of the state election.

"My energy has kind of shifted to the state campaign," she said.

"In my other hat as chairperson of Granite Belt LNP Women, our branch is sponsoring state candidate Sean Choat (for Ipswich) as well as Lawrence (Springborg).

"We purchased t-shirts for his campaign and we're planning another fundraiser on March 15 which will be a street stall."

She said she was using the time to focus more on her studies.
