Welcome to issue 35 clients and readers.

I would like to thank everyone who answered our advert in the last issue for the position of Advertising Manager. All candidates for this position had incredible skills, which made our decision very tough.

So with that said, I would like to give a very warm welcome from the LOCAL news team to Emily Thomson. Emily and her husband Scott and young family have just recently moved to Bribie Island from Perth and she has 20 years experience in media/advertising, including Realestate.com.au, Yellow Pages, Network Ten and Bauer Media. We look forward to working with you Emily and I know Bribie Island and the Surrounds community will enjoy getting to know you and your family.

Emily Thomson.

This issue you will see paid advertising from local candidates for the up and coming federal election. In fact, over the next few issues they will continue to advertise and campaign. The LOCAL news, Island and Surrounds is not a member of any political party and encourages ALL candidates to advertise and let their constituents know a little more about them and what they stand for in our community.

I hope you enjoy your read again, I welcome all your comments and letters to the Editor with your honest opinions!

Warm regards

Belinda Ferguson.
