This week is Queensland Seniors' Week, which promotes positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, and to enhance community connections.

It's an opportunity for Queenslanders to celebrate the many contributions and every day efforts of the older members of Queensland's communities.

This week, I encourage all Queenslanders to go out and truly appreciate seniors.

It's a shame the Palaszczuk Labor Government doesn't treat seniors with the respect they deserve.

Sadly, under the weakest Premier in living memory, Annastacia Palaszczuk has slugged Queenslanders with ten new or higher taxes.

Seniors wanting to enjoy their retirement are being slugged with higher rego and are forced to pay a new tax targeting their vehicles of choice.

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has also dropped the ball when it comes to aged care, as many elderly Queenslanders are suffering in silence.

Annastacia Palaszczuk is more than happy to be seen when things are going well, but when seniors are in real need of protection and support, she goes back into hiding.

Queensland seniors should be celebrated and respected and they deserve a government that is willing to address their concerns, and only the LNP is committed to doing just that.
