Eye on the community
ONE Nation’s candidate for the seat of Cook Jen Sackley will be focused on the issues which come straight from the community.
The big issue in Mareeba for this election is the Mareeba Hospital.
Ms Sackley said there was genuine community despair about the downsizing of the Mareeba Hospital and critical capacity to provide primary health services.
She said she wanted constituents to voice on matters they considered important to themselves and their families.
“Community feedback revealed issues such as high electricity costs,” she said.
“One Nation would address the high electricity costs with a new coal fired power station in FNQ and 20 per cent reduction in cost.”
One Nation were looking to work towards developing solutions to the issues they feel impacted their daily lives in collaboration with both locals and the broader community of Queensland.
She said the rising episodes of crime highlighted the need for polices to empower police, build up their resources and rename them as force not a service.
One Nation were focused this election on water security, infrastructure mainly roads, and Mareeba’s youth unemployment.
“The blatant disregarded priority to infrastructure makes the future of small business look more challenging and feeling less valued,” she said.
“I am committed to listening to the people of Cook, to take time to understand the issues they consider important.”
