Three candidates have put their names forward to take her place deputy president Tony Boulter, former MLA Elliott McAdams wife Barb Shaw and former Paul Rugers son Hal. They are all based in Tennant Creek. Ms Kunoth-Monks, who starred in the 1955 film Jedda, spends much of her time at Ampilatwatja, 300km southeast of Tennant Creek. Third hat in mayor ring THE NT town of Katherine has a third contestant in whats likely to be a gripping mayoral battle. Alderman Jodie Locke will be up against identities Toni Tapp Coutts and former Katherine MLA Fay Miller. Incumbent Anne Shepherd will not be standing again. Ms Locke represents a generational step-change in the contest she is a 39-year-old mother of three. She has been an alderman for nearly eight years after winning in a 2004 byelection. I feel like Ive done my apprenticeship and Im ready to take on the job, she said. I believe being younger, having children involved in the community, better equips me to see whats going on around town. Ms Locke, who owns a caravan park with her husband, wants Katherine council to forge better relations with the business community. It would make for better economic growth and create new pathways, she said. Like her mayoral competitors, she wants to see the council clean up the town, and better enforce bylaws to do with illegal camping and littering. And she said the Territorian and federal governments needed to help set up relief accommodation. Miller running after $900,000 payout Former CLP Member for Katherine, Fay Miller, survived a 140km/h car crash on the Stuart Highway in 2006. When she left Parliament as a result of her injuries, she was awarded a special payment of more than $900,000 By NIGEL ADLAM Fay Miller A FORMER politician standing for mayor was paid nearly $1 million of taxpayers money after saying she could no longer perform her parliamentary work. Former CLP deputy leader Fay Miller has put her name down to replace outgoing Katherine Mayor Anne Shepherd. She was a Member of the Legislative Assembly from 2003-2008. Ms Miller survived a 140km/h car crash on the Stuart Highway in 2006 and spent several weeks recover ing in hospital. Parliament considered allowing her to retire on a full pension nearly $100,000 a year. But politicians have to have been an MLA for eight years or to have won three elections to qualify for full superannuation. Ms Miller was in Parliament for only five years and won only two elections. A parliamentary superannuation committee awarded her a special payment of more than $900,000. An informed source said: Obviously, Clare and Terry felt sorry for her shed almost been killed in a car accident. But a few eyebrows have been raised by her decision to stand for mayor. If she couldnt sit in Par liament, surely she cant fulfil all the duties of mayor. But Ms Miller told the NT News yesterday that she had fully recovered from her accident. I never said I wouldnt be able to work again, she said. Ms Miller said she was recovering from a lifethreatening crash at the time of her retirement from Par liament and was taking prescription medicine. She said the regular road trips from Katherine to Darwin were gruelling. It wasnt so much the dis tance as how often I had to do the journey, she said. Ms Miller moved to Katherine from South Australia in 1989. She used to own the Red Gum Tourist Park.
