Mayoral candidate Debbie Blumel said she has been humbled by the
endorsement of Councillor Anna Grosskreutz.
“Cr Anna has been a tireless and effective councillor for Division 1 and to get her endorsement for my Mayoral bid is a tremendous honour.
"Cr Anna and I both have reputations for getting things done, so her endorsement means a lot to me," Councillor Blumel said.
"We also share a passion for Glasshouse Country and if I'm elected Mayor I'll be eager to continue her legacy.
"Many local people in Cr Anna’s division will benefit from my commitment to bring council forums to the community.
"That's all about bringing the Mayor and Councillors around the region to give more people face to face contact with their elected leaders.
"It's sad to see Anna announce her retirement at this election, and whoever replaces her will have huge shoes to fill."
