EM­PLOY­MENT is the big­gest con­cern of South Bur­nett vot­ers ahead of the state elec­tion on Novem­ber 25. In a poll of South Bur­nett

Times read­ers, out of the 78 re­spon­dents 26.9 per cent re­ported em­ploy­ment as the big­gest is­sue.

This was closely fol­lowed by en­ergy and power prices, with 23.1 per cent list­ing it as a ma­jor con­cern.

About 19 per cent of re­spon­ders listed health as their num­ber one con­cern and 11.5 per cent said the en­vi­ron­ment was their pri­mary con­cern.

Gun con­trol laws were the big­gest is­sue for 6.4 per cent of re­spon­ders, while ed­u­ca­tion was a con­cern for 5.1 per cent.

About 1 per cent of re­spon­ders listed tree clear­ing laws, le­gal­is­ing cannabis, in­creas­ing vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion in the re­gion and food se­cu­rity for

farm­ers as their ma­jor con­cerns.

In who they would vote for 32.1 per cent of re­spon­ders said they would pref­er­ence One Na­tion’s Dou­glas Grant first on their bal­lot pa­per. 32.1 per cent said they would also pref­er­ence La­bor’s Ben Rankin first.

Cur­rent LNP MP Deb Freck­ling­ton sat at 24.4 per cent of first pref­er­ence votes, and the Greens’ John Har­bi­son sat at 9 per cent.

These re­sults are not sci­en­tific and only take in the views of the 78 peo­ple who re­sponded to the sur­vey.
