Kat­ter to meet on is­sues that mat­ter

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - PAUL MIL­TON BUT­LER

THE Aus­tralia Party’s founder Bob Kat­ter MP will be in Port Dou­glas and Moss­man next Wed­nes­day for a “meet and greet”.

Speak­ing from Dalby yes­ter­day, Mr Kat­ter said he was look­ing for­ward to meet­ing the lo­cals “when the Kat­ter Cir­cus hits town”.

He said he would also be re­leas­ing a num­ber of poli­cies once he was in the Dou­glas re­gion.

“I want peo­ple, ev­ery­body, busi­ness peo­ple - any­one to come and talk us and let us know how they are far­ing as we walk about the town,” he said.

Mr Kat­ter was up­beat about his chances of party can­di­date Lach­lan Ben­sted be­ing elected to State Par­lia­ment and gave an out­line of what he would be do­ing if the Aus­tralia Party won power.

“The first thing we will be do­ing im­me­di­ately is al­low­ing de­vel­op­ment in the hin­ter­land and im­me­di­ately help­ing the Moss­man Su­gar Mill to be able to pro­duce ethanol which this coun­try needs des­per­ately,” Mr Kat­ter said.

“I will also be open­ing up ar­eas im­me­di­ately to ir­ri­ga­tion that has pre­vi­ously been closed down by ill-think­ing numb­skulls.

“The cut­backs that have been made in Far North Queens­land are just out­ra­geous and I won’t al­low it to con­tinue once we get into Govern­ment.

“But we all have to do more - we all have to pull to­gether to make this once great coun­try of ours great again, but that won’t hap­pen if we have id­iot gov­ern­ments mak­ing de­ci­sions.

“Peo­ple who know how to run things have to be lis­tened to.”

You can meet Bob Kat­ter, Lach­lan Ben­sted and Queens­land party pres­i­dent MP Ai­dan Mclin­don in Port Dou­glas for break­fast at 8am fol­lowed by a walk down Macrossan St.

They will then at­tend a Moss­man brunch at 10am and a catch-up with small busi­ness own­ers and lo­cals be­fore the visit ends with a lunch meet­ing at noon at the Cow Bay Ho­tel.


I come in peace: Bob Kat­ter will visit the

re­gion next week
