Central Western Queensland, in fact the whole of our State has lost a great Queenslander.
Butch Lenton, the Mayor of Winton Shire and a director of RAPAD passed away yesterday in Winton, the town that he was born in and the town he loved. Butch was a man's man. He called a spade a spade and he adored Ros and his family.
When speaking of Winton and one of the shires many achievements he always remarked how good it would be for Western Queensland. A team player in local government, local footy and local politics.
On behalf of all Councils of the RAPAD area, all of the RAPAD staff and directors of RAPAD I pass on our sincere condolences to you Ros, your family and the Winton community.
Cr Rob Chandler, Chair RAPAD, Mayor, BRC.
