David Fletcher's Locals United Party admits community engagement has been their biggest drive as the Mount Isa City Council election is decided this weekend.
Back at his second shot for Mayor, David Fletcher announced his hat was being thrown back in the ring way back in September last year.
David Fletcher said he has walked the entire town speaking to as many people as possible over the past six months.
"Community engagement is our biggest drive as team, we go out there and speak to the community and will continue to listen," Mr Fletcher said.
"Our team is split into four where each person has a portfolio they would look after if elected.
"We have Jennifer French who is also the event organiser for the Australian Swimwear Model of the Year Mount Isa who would be head of service delivery.
"Then there's former child safety officer and current business owner Robyn Ferrier who would be in charge of business development with her strong background in that field.
"We also have James Cook University academic Stephanie King and her portfolio is community strengthening, the remaining portfolio is infrastructure and I would run that as I am an engineer," Mr Fletcher said.
Robyn Ferrier said Locals United would be present on the big issues of youth crime and now new business concern.
"There has been a lot of funding announced to help people out during these tough times but there will be more help needed once the disruption ends," Ms Ferrier said.
"For the time being we need to focus on surviving this virus, once we get through that we will need to understand the business world better as what we are going through is unprecedented.
"We will look at what services we can deliver in order to help our community and make sure no one falls behind in these dark times," she said.
Jennifer French said in a perfect world you want the town run by the town.
"I think as far as the election goes we are the closest team to that," Ms French said.
"Our team covers age, race and demographic so I think we have the resources to really be team that stays level headed."
David Fletcher said he was going to bring down the water rates first thing.
"People need to be able to affordably use water," he said.
"We are also going to address the petty crime.
"There are so many levels to tackling youth crime, engagement is key and we will do anything it takes, one thing we won't do is put the blame on police or state and federal governments.
"One angle our team is looking at is the flaws in the juvenile justice act which doesn't come down hard enough on the kids," he said.
"There needs to be more consequences and accountability for the crimes that are being committed.
"Overall we just want to help, that's why we are all here, we are all down to earth and are a tight knit team."
