Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

I’ve seen this re­gion go back­wards un­der a La­bor govern­ment and it re­ally sad­dens me. There are so many worth­while projects and peo­ple with pas­sion, who just need a bit of sup­port - but our re­gion has seen noth­ing in the way of in­vest­ment to get th­ese off the ground. It’s also been an ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing in Op­po­si­tion - while it’s good to be able to put the right peo­ple to­gether to achieve things and make changes, I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to do more.

I’d love to see a Coali­tion gov­ern- ment back the es­tab­lish­ment of the Great Bar­rier Reef Arts & Ex­po­si­tion Fo­rum - this would be a mas­sive eco­nomic boost for the town and to­gether with David Mar­riner’s re­fur­bish­ment of the Sher­a­ton, will put Port Dou­glas back on the lux­ury tourism map. I think the Moss­man Botanic Gar­den pro­ject is very worth­while - it’ll show­case our unique rain­for­est species and give vis­i­tors an­other rea­son to stop in.
