I am most concerned that voters in the forthcoming Scenic Rim local elections being held on Saturday 28th April may not be aware that Mayor John Brent has been investigated by the Office of the Adult Guardian for alleged misconduct related to An Enduring Power of Attorney he holds for elderly acquaintances with dementia, and that a finding will be made shortly after the Election.
An article was written by investigative journalist Hedley Thomas in the Weekend Australian on 10 March 2012. Why this important information has not been reported by our biggest Queensland daily newspaper The Courier Mail is quite disturbing.
I would urge all Scenic Rim voters to go to the following link on The Australian website to read the article on Mr Brent before they vote on 28 April.
Mayor Brent is obviously putting a “spin” on his response to this article, but one would have to question why he was not endorsed by the LNP as a candidate for Beaudesert at the recent State elections when he is so highly regarded by then Leader and now Premier Campbell Newman.
