Katter to meet on issues that matter
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
