Division 1 candidate Mark Hammel calls on Gold Coasters to vote for councillors with vision to get city through turbulent economic times ahead
Division 1 candidate Mark Hammel has announced a economic, business and job creation strategy that aims to help lift the Gold Coast out of an impending recession triggered by the coronavirus pandemic. Mr Hammel said the coming months were critical for the Gold Coast economy, and that council would not be able to rest on its economic plans of the past or present. He said a multi-faceted economic plan would require councillors to work collaboratively together with all levels of government to shield the northern Gold Coast and wider city from the impacts of a recession.
