(Australian Sex Party Note: Australian Sex Party Independent Rory Killen is top of the ballot for the Brisbane Lord Mayor. Vote 1 for Rory!)
Lord Mayor Cr Graham Quirk and Labor lord mayoral hopeful Ray Smith joined in an hour-long online blog on the Courier-Mail's website this morning [Monday] to answer questions from ratepayers on everything from rates to parking and their views on cycling infrastructure.
The Brisbane City Council poll will take place on Saturday with more than 670,000 residents enrolled to have their say.
Five people have put up their hands for the lord mayoralty including Cr Quirk, Mr Smith, Greens candidate Andrew Bartlett, independent Chris Carson and Australian Sex Party candidate Rory Killen.
With five days to go Cr Quirk remains the front-runner.
His policies include 360 new buses over four years, $120 million on cycling infrastructure and new citycat terminals at Milton and Bulimba.
Mr Smith, meanwhile, has pledged an $800 million roads package and $100 million for cycling infrastructure along with an inflation rates cap for owner occupiers to help ease the cost of living burden.
Cr Quirk is yet to announce his rates policy with both major parties to release their costings in the coming days.
