Cameron Atfield reports in the Brisbane Times (3.3.16) on Brisbane Lord Mayoral condidate, Rod Harding’s, promise to reveal details of his election campaign’s donors prior to the council election later this month. Harding also committed to rejecting donations from businesses while in dealings with the City Council.
‘Labor lord mayoral candidate Rod Harding has promised his administration would not accept donations from businesses with proposals before council should he be elected later this month.
‘But while Mr Harding’s commitment drew fire from both the Liberal National Party and Greens campaigns, his promise to disclose all Labor donations prior to the March 19 election looked to have shored up Greens preferences.
‘Greens lord mayoral candidate Ben Pennings told Fairfax Media their how-to-vote cards were set to go to the printer on Thursday and it it was now likely they would preference Labor ahead of the LNP.’
