Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale visits Gympie

IPSWICH Mayor Paul Pisasale will be in Gympie next month to speak on the region's "road to recovery" following back-to-back floods.

Mayor Pisasale will be special guest speaker at the May 30 meeting of the Gympie First Forum, chaired by Member for Gympie and Mary Valley Economic Development Committee chairman David Gibson.

Cr Pisasale will speak on his vision to rebrand Ipswich and the role he played in its recovery after the 2011 floods.

"Paul is a larger than life character who is dedicated to the City of Ipswich and has an enthusiastic drive and passion for working at a regional level, breaking down barriers and ensuring that people are the number one priority," Mr Gibson said.

"Ipswich continues to punch above its weight, achieving results for present and future generations. It is seen by many around Australia and the world, as an example of how cities should develop in partnership with their local community and business sectors."

The lunch will cost $55 a person or $600 for a table of 12. There will be an open bar available at the lunch.

There are a limited number of seats available so book early at www.trybooking.com/CREE.

The Gympie First Forum has hosted a number of presenters, including Professor Paul Thomas AM, Assistant Minister Deb Frecklington MP and Professor Roland De Marco, covering topics including local healthcare changes, forestry industry developments and the State Budget.
