Letter to the Editor by Tim Mander MP

The latest Queensland Auditor-General's report into the state finances reveals some home truths about Annastacia Palaszczuk and Jackie Trad's mishandling of the Queensland economy.

Annastacia Palaszczuk's reckless economic mismanagement over the past five years has driven Queensland's financial position to the worst it's ever been, creating a massive budget black hole.

Every dollar that Labor wastes is a dollar they can't spend on the infrastructure a growing state desperately needs.

We know from history that when Labor run out of money they come after yours with higher taxes.

Already in this term, Queenslanders have faced nine new or increased taxes ripping $3.5 billion out of the Queensland economy.

While Labor's dodgy Treasurer Jackie Trad has been distracted with integrity scandals and her own personal property investments, the Auditor General's investigation has revealed that this year the Queensland government will have net operating deficit of $1.1 billion.

As Queensland's surgery wait lists blow out, NAPLAN education standards continue to fall and youth crime spirals out of control, Annastacia Palaszczuk has chosen to splurge taxpayer money on apps for fat dogs, changing hospital names and record international travel expenditure.

After five years of power, it's clear that Annastacia Palaszczuk and Jackie Trad are in it for themselves at the expense of hard-working Queenslanders.

Queensland has boundless opportunity, but we need a government that has the plan and the ambition to unleash that opportunity.

Only the LNP has a plan to build a stronger economy that will create more local jobs and improve health and education services.

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander
