Both Cairns and Sunshine Coast residents will go to the polls to elect their regional council Mayors on March 19th and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is tipping both incumbents to be re-elected.
Sunshine Coast candidate Mark Jamieson is a short $1.20 to win office again ahead of Alison Barry-Jones on $6.00 – both the other candidates are outsiders at double digit odds.
It’s a two horse race in Cairns where Jim Brooks is the $2.50 challenger to take over from Bob Manning, the $1.50 favourite.
“Mark Jamieson looks very much like a safe pair of hands that Sunshine Coast locals will stick with judging from the odds,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
“Bob Manning is facing a real fight from Jim Brooks and the odds here could be more 50/50 by the tie polling day comes around.”
