Ipswich truckie first to announce bid for councillor

AN IPSWICH truck driver has put his hand up to stand in the 2020 Local Government Elections.

Ashley Barber wrote on social media that he felt the area needed "young blood, fresh blood that has never been exposed to all the debacles that have happened in regards to the council".

The proud dad said he would focus on crime and greening the environment if he became a councillor for division four, the greater Brassall area.

Mr Barber runs the Brassall and Surrounding Areas Facebook page and has a background in the transport industry and commercial cookery.

The Queensland Times reported that Mr Barber was the third person to express his interest in the Ipswich City Council election shake-up next year, along with mayoral candidate Gary Duffy and David Martin.
