On state elec­tion

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

The so-called two ma­jor par­ties in the up­com­ing elec­tion keep promis­ing mil­lions of dol­lars for jobs, health, re­new­able power etc over the next 10 years. In North Queens­land what we need now is con­trol of youth crime, crocodile man­age­ment, in­sur­ance re­lief and fuel and power price reg­u­la­tion. One Na­tion and KAP are of­fer­ing this, us­ing ex­ist­ing re­sources now, not pie-in-the-sky prom­ises over 10 years. Viv, Ear­lville Tim Ni­cholls. Queens­lan­ders don’t want a cut to whole­sale elec­tric­ity prices, we need a cut to re­tail prices. There is a great dif­fer­ence for Mr and Mrs Av­er­age in this state. Toby, Edge Hill
