Labor abandons rural and regional Queensland

Australian Government Elections Energy & Water Political Queensland Government


Letter to the Editor.
For regional and rural Queenslanders, the election results confirmed what we have known for some time.
Labor has abandoned the bush and does not stand for those who live, work and raise a family in areas outside of Brisbane.
The Palaszczuk Labor Government are squarely to blame for Queensland's election result. Their city-centric agenda of ruling from Brisbane for Brisbane has seen policy after policy hurt rural and regional Queensland.
Whether it be its anti-farmer unfair vegetation management laws or the continued political interference in the approval of the Carmichael Adani mine project, Labor has proven they are anti-jobs, anti-resources and anti-regions.
Compound this with the cuts to regional maternity services, the return to the Bligh-era hospital chaos, high regional unemployment and 5 new taxes since the state election and it is no wonder Queenslanders are angry.
Queenslanders want a government that gives them opportunities to develop and grow jobs in their towns and communities – not one that plays politics.
When I first became Opposition Leader, I said I would fight to end the city-country divide and an LNP Government I lead would do exactly that.
I am committed to creating opportunities and jobs in our regions and returning the wealth they generate back into these communities.
The LNP will build water infrastructure and dams that create jobs and opportunities.
We will develop our natural mining and agricultural assets through fair and workable laws.
We are committed to unlocking our state's potential with no new taxes and lowering the cost of electricity through more retail competition and restructuring government-owned power generators from two to three entities.
The LNP will slash red and green tape and ensure businesses are able to grow and employ more Queenslanders.
The LNP understands the needs of rural and regional Queensland and we are ready to govern for the whole state – not just Brisbane.
