From the DEX editor's desk: More than just a Power 30
I HOPE you've enjoyed following our countdown so far of the 30 most influential people in the Clarence Valley for 2018.
From the developers at the top end of town to public figures getting the job done and key advocates of specific community groups, we've tried to cover all bases when it comes to compiling a list of our region's biggest movers and shakers.
THE POWER 30 COUNTDOWN SO FAR:
- Power 30: Clarence Valley's most influential #15-18
- Power 30: Clarence Valley's most influential #19-22
- Power 30: Clarence Valley's most influential #23-26
- Power 30: Clarence Valley's most influential #27-30
We're getting down to the business end, with No.11 to 14 revealed tomorrow before the announcement of our top 10 in a special liftout in Saturday's DEX, and the full comprehensive list online exclusively for digital subscribers only.
The Power 30 list is, of course, highly subjective and will be debated in households from Iluka to Coutts Crossing, Copmanhurst to Corindi and everywhere in between.
Chins will wag, glass jaws will shatter and the only certainty is that no one will agree.
So next week we'll deliver all the reaction on who - and who didn't - make the list. We'll also run a poll to find out who our readers think deserves to claim top spot. We'll also hear from some of the Power 30 inductees themselves.
But it won't end there... keep an eye out for the Clarence Valley's Top 10 Most Influential Sports People and Top 10 Most Influential Young People (under 30).
And to give our Power 30 a greater purpose and justify each inductee's influential standing in our community, I will invite each to contribute their own thoughts on issues important to them in a dedicated weekly Power 30 column in 2019.
