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.”
