Article image for Four Queensland mayors suspended over integrity offences

Four Queensland mayors have been suspended after reforms to local government legislation came into effect.

The new local government laws came into effect in Queensland after passing parliament last week.

Under the laws, any councillor charged with serious integrity offences, such as bribery, corruption and fraud, are automatically suspended with pay.

Logan Mayor Luke Smith, Ipswich Mayor Andrew Antoniolli, Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council Mayor Edric Walden and Hope Vale Mayor Greg McLean have all been suspended.

So has Logan Councillor Stacey McIntosh.

  • Luke Smith (official corruption and perjury)
  • Andrew Antoniolli (fraud)
  • Edric Walden (misconduct in public office and forgery)
  • Gren McLean (fraud)
  • Stacy McIntosh (stealing)
