JOHN ARKAN CONSIDERING ANOTHER FEDERAL ELECTION

Coffs Harbour councillor, John Arkan, is considering taking another tilt at federal politics.

Councillor Arkan says he’s thinking about standing as an independent in either Cowper or Page at the upcoming election.

In 2010, he received 8,000 votes – the highest of any independent candidate to contest the seat of Cowper since 1969.

Nationals MP Luke Hartsuyker currently holds the seat, with 61 per cent of the votes.
