Ed­i­tor’s com­ment:

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK - Greg Mclean Man­ag­ing ed­i­tor

IT AP­PEARS a for­mal­ity the LNP will win Satur­day’s elec­tion con­vinc­ingly.

Even La­bor is con­ced­ing de­feat with its tele­vi­sion ad­ver­tise­ments this week urg­ing vot­ers to en­sure the LNP isn’t handed an over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity.

The ques­tion vot­ers in the Dou­glas re­gion have to de­cide on is, has Ja­son O’brien done enough in Gov­ern­ment to se­cure your vote or do you side with the LNP’S David Kemp­ton who is al­most cer­tain to be in power come Satur­day night.

While I’m happy to sit on the fence in re­gards to de-amal­ga­ma­tion un­til a proper cost anal­y­sis is com­pleted, it ap­pears even Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil wants the com­mu­nity to de­cide one way or the other.

Kemp­ton has also promised to con­struct a round­about at the en­trance of Port Dou­glas and has at least shown sup­port for State Gov­ern­ment back­ing of the Sher­a­ton Mi­rage re­de­vel­op­ment.

O’brien de­serves credit for his sup­port of the Port Dou­glas Waterfront but we are yet to see an ac­tual dol­lar amount put for­ward. Vot­ers prob­a­bly have to fall be­hind the LNP by de­fault but Kemp­ton has to de­liver.
