Queensland Seniors Week is an opportunity for all of us to celebrate the many contributions of seniors in our communities.
This year is a bit different, with coronavirus having mental health implications, physical distancing and social isolation affecting seniors more than any other age group.
The LNP has a plan to look after our seniors.
A Deb Frecklington LNP State Government will introduce free off-peak travel for seniors on the CityTrain network.
This will be a huge saving for the over 60s and will also encourage seniors to get out and about more – reducing social isolation.
The LNP will also put the brake on cost of living pressures, while regional seniors will save an average $300 a year saving on their power bills from our plan for electricity competition.
Queensland seniors deserve to be celebrated and respected, not just by Queensland communities, but also by a State Government that is willing to address their real concerns.
Annastacia Palaszczuk has smashed Queenslanders with nine new or increased taxes, ripping almost $4 billion dollars out of the economy.
Only the LNP has a plan to stimulate the economy, create a decade of secure jobs, reduce cost of living and drag Queensland out of recession.
To our seniors, we value you, we respect you and we thank you.
