Wheres Schwarto

Stephen Schwarten

According to history, going “missing” is something the Schwarten family is good at. The video below shows the former Queensland Premier Anna Bligh unbeknown to her, participating in a game of Where’s Schwarto. So if the Schwarten family can trick the Queensland Premier, what chance do the people of Division 7 in Rockhampton have?

 

The tax payer got ripped off by Robert Schwarten so maybe it’s time for the ratepayer to get ripped off by Stephen Schwarten?

As of 1 January 2014 Councillor Schwarten is a committee member of the following:
• Communities Committee
• Infrastructure Committee
• Parks and Recreation Committee
• Performance and Service Committee

By Law, Councillors are required to attend the ‘ordinary’ meetings of Council.
