Retiring South Burnett Mayor David Carter is proud of what the Council has achieved over the past four years.

Speaking this afternoon after the close of the last council meeting before the Local Government elections, Cr Carter said he was leaving the South Burnett Regional Council financially in a very good place.

“One of my greatest achievements is that we are now financially viable which enables us to move forward quite successfully,” he said.

Cr Carter said he was now going to take a holiday before looking for opportunities for other ways to help the region.

He planned to continue his interests in health, especially Healthy Communities, and tourism.

Cr Carter said all the councillors – and himself – had done the best they possibly could for the benefit of the region.

Any regrets?  “No regrets at all.”
