Three-way mayor (mare) race

The Mercury: Three-way mayor race [26sep05]

THE battle for the position of Hobart lord mayor is now a three-horse race with long-serving alderman Jeff Briscoe announcing his candidacy yesterday.

Ald Briscoe will run for the post at next month's local government elections against incumbent Lord Mayor Rob Valentine and colourful councillor and restaurateur Marti Zucco, who announced early last week he would stand.

Ald Briscoe, who has been on the Hobart City Council for 11 years, said he had "seen incredible opportunities missed in the last seven years" under the leadership of Ald Valentine.

"This election is all about leadership, the vision, the future and the means to achieve it," he said.

"Since 1994 I have had the privilege to be an alderman of the city of Hobart and observed the styles of three council leaders and have seen incredible opportunities missed in the last seven years.
