Sign of inaction?
MAYBE Andrew Powell should visit more areas in his electorate then he would know that his signs started being defaced two weeks ago.
As a regular traveller between Cambroon and Maleny I have seen pink adornments to his signs appear since the election was called.
Driving to Brisbane early on Saturday there was more of the same.
While I don’t condone the vandalism, maybe it is more a “sign” of his inaction as a state member both in government and opposition, especially for the outer reaches of his electorate, than being targeted by his opponents
Three years ago he promised to campaign for a mobile phone tower in our area so we could get phone reception. He sent out surveys, gave us the rhetoric.
We’re still waiting. We’ve been told it is coming but that is what we’ve been told for more than 15 years.
For more than 10 years we have been waiting for roadwork to widen the one-lane, pot-holed goat track past Conondale heading to Kenilworth.
It is one of the main tourist entrances to Kenilworth and the Conondale National Park with a host of travellers towing caravans and camper-trailers.
As is, it is a hazardous drive for Powell’s constituents let alone a disincentive for patrons of businesses and farmers trying to make a living in the electorate. Lots of promises, a short-term grading and a police enforcement bay is what we received.
When he was in government we in the boon docks received even less. — JOANNE SCOTT Cambroon
