Play­ing pol­i­tics

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS / OPINION -

ONE can un­der­stand Alan Thor­ton sup­port­ing his friend Steve Dick­son, how­ever Alan has only told half the story.

Steve Dick­son did de­liver some worth­while ben­e­fits for Bud­erim, how­ever this oc­curred while he was the elected LNP mem­ber.

Peo­ple should re­alise that it was the LNP State Gov­ern­ment that pro­vided those ben­e­fits, not Steve Dick­son.

One could ask – what did Steve achieve for Bud­erim be­fore the LNP be­came the State Gov­ern­ment and with the re­turn to a La­bor gov­ern­ment he has achieved very lit­tle for our elec­torate.

Alan goes to say that the LNP has done noth­ing for the Sun­shine Coast.

Would he say the

$1.3 bil­lion that fed­eral LNP mem­bers Ted O’Brien, An­drew Wal­lace and Lou O’Brien have pro­cured for up­grad­ing the Bruce Hwy and ex­tend­ing the air­port is noth­ing?

These are projects that have been pro­moted for years, and now thanks to their ef­forts are about to come to fruition.

This huge in­jec­tion of Com­mon­wealth funds is the largest the Sun­shine Coast has ever gained, so Alan please give credit where credit is due.

Consider this sim­ple ques­tion, as Queens­land will have ei­ther an LNP or La­bor gov­ern­ment af­ter the next state elec­tion, and as Bud­erim is con­sid­ered a con­ser­va­tive seat, then our elec­torate is surely bet­ter served by an LNP mem­ber and Brent Mick­el­berg, the LNP can­di­date, has all the cre­den­tials to serve Bud­erim with hon­esty, en­ergy and sin­cer­ity. — David Feez, Bud­erim
