Mayor declares his hand

DERWENT Valley mayor Martyn Evans has ended months of speculation by announcing his intention to seek preselection to contest the seat of Lyons as a Liberal Party candidate at next year's State Elections.

Mr Evans has made no secret of his political aspirations over the last year but did not reveal his allegiances until yesterday. There was some speculation the mayor would stand with Katter's Australian Party, having hosted party leader Bob Katter in New Norfolk and attended meetings with the Queensland MP in Hobart.

The Mercury newspaper has Mr Evans' announcement here.
