LA­BOR can­di­date Graeme Martin has lived in Biloela for the past 38 years and is pas­sion­ately op­posed to as­set sales.

He joined the La­bor Party be­cause it stood for work­ing-class peo­ple.

“I have al­ways been in­ter­ested in pol­i­tics and I have al­ways thought the La­bor Party of­fered the best poli­cies,” Mr Martin said.

“La­bor will re­store the highly suc­cess­ful Skilling Queens­lan­ders for Work pro­gram that was axed by the LNP.

“Based on my prin­ci­ples and those of the La­bor Party of giv­ing peo­ple a fair go, the LNP has proven it can­not be trusted to run Queens­land.

“Over the last three years of the LNP gov­ern­ment, we have seen cuts to our lo­cal front-line ser­vices.

“La­bor has com­mit­ted to re­store 400 nurses to our hos­pi­tals and 2500 teach­ers to our schools.

“I will make sure we get our fair share.”

Mr Martin said he hoped the elec­torate would see him as a fresh face for Cal­lide who would be a strong voice for the com­mu­nity.

It will be a David vs Go­liath bat­tle for La­bor in Cal­lide but he said he was up for the chal­lenge.

“I be­lieve that in­di­vid­u­als count.

“Peo­ple are strug­gling to sur­vive in present-day Queens­land and La­bor has a vi­brant team ready to serve.”
